The Museo del Tessuto e della Tappezzeria "Vittorio Zironi" di Villa Spada(Museum of woven and tapestry “Vittorio Zironi” at Villa Spada) hosts the exhibition La moda etnica estone dal passato al futuro(The estonian ethnic fashion from the past to the future) curated by Anu Hint, from December 17th, 2017 to February 24th, 2018. For the first time in Italy, Estonian fashion designers exhibit their creations taking inspiration from their traditional costumes.
The exhibition features dresses, cloths, and photos. Through shapes, colours, and decorative motives it illustrates and enhances the imaginary language of the ethnic art, revealing how the style that has developed during the years is still alive. The Estonian stylists, who work in the field of ethnic fashion creation, propose new ideas, and also point out the richness, the modernity and the variety of their traditional costumes. In Estonia there are about 90 different costumes which can be divided into four main groups: of the northern areas, of the eastern areas, of the southern areas, and of the islands.
