This tiny museum is tucked away in a former convent from the 8th century. The fashions and accessories cover the period from the late 1800s to the 1990s. The luxurious fabrics and workmanship are a testimony to the creativity of the fashion designer. For those...More

The proprietor's mother must have inspired her son to create this place.... it's small and special and worth your time.

Loved walking through this collection of designs from the early 1800's up to the 1960's. The theme was flowers. I was particularly interested in the stitching and designs of the pieces. They were displayed so well along with shoes, hairclips, handbags.
