The weekend to end weekends
Historical Underwear Show
March 8, 19:00; National Museum, Ny Vestergade 10, Cph K; 125kr incl wine; natmus.dk
It’s International Women’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than a historical underwear fashion show?
The role of torpedo bras, crinolines, corsets, chemises and racy lingerie are all explored as the changing fads of women’s underwear are linked to ideals, equality and women’s rights from 1880 to 1980.
Volunteers will squeeze into items such as the bone-crushing wasp’s waist corset as the show traces the history of underwear. And ethnologist Frederikke Heick will be at hand to provide a historial pespective.
