The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has a beautiful exhibition about fashion, named "Catwalk" dedicated to fashion of the Dutch from 1625 to 1960.
The exhibition is designed by Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf and he made a fantastic moving catwalk with seats aside where you can watch the dresses slowly passing by.
Look at this wedding dress.
The uncomfortable dresses with addings behind and aside, how to sit in these?
Because of the vulnerability of the old fabrics there was not much light to photograph.
The masterpiece was this weddingdress "Manteau" from 1759 worn by 22 year old Helena Slicher. The dress is more then 2 meters wide and has beautiful embroidery.
I couldn't resist....
