Art Deco Fashions May 9th to August 6th
The Art Deco movement had a profound influence on the world of fashion in the 1920s to 1930s. In the upcoming feature exhibit Art Deco Fashions, visitors to the Nanaimo Museum can view over 25 garments and accessories that beautifully represent the era’s trends of simplicity, cubism, and youthfulness. Beginning in Paris, the style quickly gained worldwide popularity, drawing inspiration from geometric shapes to evoke elegance and modernity. It was also influenced by an increased ability to travel world wide – bringing inspiration from faraway places such as Russia, Egypt, and Mexico. Pieces were selected from the collections of guest curators, Ivan Sayers and Claus Jahnke, the Nanaimo Museum and other private collections. The exhibit runs from May 9th to August 6th.
