Fashioning the ‘58

05.04.2018 - Dries Tack

Expo 58 was the place where countries celebrated peace by showing their achievements. Most of the attendees wanted to show off during these celebrations too. That is why people gathered to the Expo wearing their Sunday best. So, when remembering the event, fashion is not to be omitted.

Podium 58 is an exhibition that explores the styles of Expo 58. There you can see a variety of impressive outfits typical for that period. The collection ranges from sketches off podiums, to newspaper clippings, to the real pieces. All of the items that were gathered from the attendees themselves have their own unique stories.
