The Power of Fashion – getting dressed

One of the coolest parts of the fashion exhibit at the Nordiska Museet (Nordic Museum) in Stockholm is the video they have showing people (a man and two women) getting dressed in period costume. It attracts crowds and the whole silent half hour is completely riveting, even for those used to historical dress.

Even better, I just learned they have it available on YouTube!


Here’s the webpage to the Nordiska Museet’s clothing and textiles where they talk about different components of their clothing and textile collections. This webpage isn’t available in English, but its worth looking at in a translation program (like Chrome), because they have some really interesting things to check out.
