The dress of the body

/

El cuerpo del vestido

Barcelona is in luck! with the opening of the Museu del Disseny. On December 13, a new space for graphics, decorative arts, pottery and textiles was born; and today houses a very greedy and instructive exhibition: “The bodice”. With it, you can see how the dress has changed over its history the appearance of the body, by means of actions that tend to compress and release it alternatively, from the sixteenth century to the present. The way we dress has always corresponded to moral, social and aesthetic codes, you´ll see reflected in the designs on display. The fashion imposes standards of beauty and silhouettes and volumes are modified: nature gives way to artifice. And we we fall into it.
