25 May – 2 December. The Austrian Folklore Museum displays 350 textile samples from the estate of the Austrian fashion designer Emilie Louise Flöge.
In her role as owner of Vienna's haute-couture salon Schwestern Flöge, which was located on Mariahilfer Straße, Flöge designed dresses for members of Vienna's high society. Many of the fabrics in this exhibition, including embroidery work and lace, are on public display for the first time.
In addition to her fashion designs, Flöge is remembered for being the life-partner of famed symbolist artist Gustav Klimt whose 150th anniversary is currently being celebrated across Vienna.
Flöge met Klimt in the 1890s and they were together until he passed away in 1918; Flöge died in Vienna in 1952.
