A final post about my recent trip to Berlin, before it seems like a distant memory. One of the many museums we visited, and top of my list, was the Museum of Decorative Arts (Kunstgewerbemuseum). The museum has an extensive fashion collection, mostly housed in a dedicated Fashion Gallery, but with some pieces jotted around the rest of the museum.
The collection includes garments, accessories, shoes and lingerie. I photographed quite a few of these – photos below.
Other museums in Berlin with some textile element which I visited:
Berlin’s Film and TV Museum (Museum für Film und Fernsehen) has a permanent Marlene Dietrich exhibition, including a number of her clothes.
The Bauhaus Archive is fascinating, and includes a number of Bauhaus weavings and textiles.
The DDR Museum is good fun, and includes a fashion section, including examples of East Berlin sewing pattern magazines.
And, not at all craft related, but I really enjoyed the Computer Games Museum (Computerspielemuseum Berlin).
