28 May 2009 - 3 January 2010. Over one hundred garments from the last century are displayed in this exhibition, offering a sartorial trip down memory lane. It charts the history of fashion from its beginnings when it was mass produced with practicality in mind, to the first artistic creations of British designer Charles Frederick Worth. The most famous fashion houses obviously feature in this show, including Poiret, Patou, Paquin, Chanel, Vionner, Balenciaga, Saint Laurant and Dior.
The building in which the collection is displayed was inaugurated as the Spanish Museum of Contemporary Art in 1975.
