Headwear between Utility and Utopia
"Fashion Utopias: Haute Couture in the Graphic Arts" - that's the small exhibition that I visited last Sunday at the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art (MAK). On the basis of graphic artworks from the late 15th century to the 1930s, the exhibition illustrates the historical development of a passion for designs that fall between the extremes of utility and utopia. I happened to join an interesting guided tour focusing on headwear fashion.
