In December 2014, Designmuseum Danmark opened a permanent exhibition of fashion and textiles – for the first time in the museum’s history. With around 350 exhibits from the museum’s sizeable collections, the exhibition will provide visitors with a unique perspective into fashion and textile design history – with a particular focus on Danish developments in the field over the past 300 to 400 years. A wealth of designs, patterns, motifs and colours represented in textiles, outfits and accessories will be on display in glass display cases and in the museum’s bespoke drawer display chests specially designed by Danish furniture designer Børge Mogensen.

Following three thematic lines – Design and Decoration, Handicrafts and Industry, Body and Identity – the exhibition will chronologically relate the story of design, textile technology, production forms, tastes, fashions, and home furnishings through the ages. In addition to the three main themes, the exhibition will focus on a specific selected theme in a separate room.
