Our partner MUDE talks to renowned Portuguese fashion designer José António Tenente about his curatorial work at the museum, his work with the museum's collection and his views on the Europeana Fashion project.
"ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion" is the title of the latest exhibition at our partner Centraal Museum. The exhibition explores unconvential forms of fashion, which might be so bizarre we would label them as monstrous and ask ourselves what beauty really is.
The images on Tumblr in November are a selection from the permanent exhibition “Jewellery” that opened at the Nordiska museet in 2012. On show are 1,000 pieces of jewellery dating from the sixteenth century to the present day. In various ways they reflect Sweden’s history, giving glimpses of the people who wore these pieces and the time in which they lived.
Rich as it is, Wikipedia will be enriched some more, specifically with knowledge about shoes and all things fashion. Europeana Fashion is organising three consecutive edit-a-thons this November and presents the first online month-long Europeana Fashion challenge.
