The Fashion Museum

One of the main strengths of the Fashion Museum is to present a completely new exhibition each year, always centred around a chosen theme. Each piece is displayed for 9 months before being returned to the archives. This museum presents clothing and accessories from the private collection of Dominique Miraille, covering a period from the end of the 17th century to the 2000's.

"Broderie" : A BRAND NEW EXHIBITION 

The Fashion Museum displays a completely new collection of clothes from the 18th century to the late 1990's. The art of embroidery ("La broderie" in French) is added to desired on an already-maufactured fabricks. There are no chronological links between the different pieces: the visitor is invited to admire the magnificence of the clothes displayed, discovering embroidery can be considered an art.

 

A HISTORIC SITE

The Fashion Museum is located in a part of the former Annociades' Convent whose architectural traces are still visible: spiral staircase, Gothic doors, vaulted cellar... The building itself is worth the detour. It is situated in the heart of Albi’s heritage, an area full of history: the Saint-Julien district.

THE MUSEUM BOUTIQUE

Just next to the museum, a fun boutique offers original, yet still very affordable pieces: vintage clothing and jewellery, haberdashery, lace and antique fabrics and also catalogues and postcards from past exhibitions.
