Victorian fashion cult in Riga

An authentic collection of women's and men's clothing of the Victorian times (1837-1901) is on display, for the first time ever in Latvia, at Riga’s Museum of Decorative Arts and Design until October 11, 2009. The display comprises about 50 garments and numerous accessories from England, France, Italy, Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire and is representative of different styles, beginning with Romanticism up to Art Nouveau. It is part of the Paris-based vast collection of Russian-born stage and costume designer Alexandre Vassiliev.
