The 1960s were the decade of decadence! The emancipation of the woman’s body, the rise of ready-to-wear, new cuts and new materials. The female wardrobe opens its doors to freedom of expression. The miniskirt appears. The bikini pops onto the scene. In its exhibition Sixties, the colours of a liberation movement, the Brussels Fashion & Lace Museum retraced this trend via its collections.
In its collections, the Museum has outfits designed by André Courrèges, the iconic designer of the 1960s. These outfits such as the coat dress, showcased in the “Sixties” exhibition and highlighting the colours of the liberation movement, can be viewed via the inventory of the movable cultural heritage of the Brussels-Capital Region
