A Moveable Feast. Art Deco Fashion Design from Alexandre Vassiliev's Collection

Once again KUMU (Art Museum of Estonia) has came up with a really good exhibition, this one must be my favourite after the show of Irving Penn's photographs last year. 

The exhibition based on the collection of Alexandre Vassiliev (1958), a fashion historian, interior designer and scenographer well known in Europe, focuses on the decade of spiritual and corporal liberation that followed World War I. The exhibition is comprised of 80 costumes and more than 200 accessories, as well as photos and paintings, all illustrating the development of European fashion in the inter-war period (1918–1939), when Art Deco was the dominant style.

Here's just a small preview, the exhibit has so much more to offer: breathtaking dress, dazzling jewels, witty accessories, paintings, movies from the era etc
Be sure to get there before it closes on January 18.
