Overview

Visit the Fashion Museum in the heart of Riga! With interactive, hands-on exhibits for children and adults, the Museum showcases clothing styles over the centuries. The exhibitions are made possible thanks to the generous contribution of the Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation, one of the top three largest private fashion collections holders in the world. The current exhibition is dedicated to the fashion of 1930s. Hollywood divas Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich, renowned couturiers Lucien Lelong, Maggy Rouff, and Elsa Schiaparelli, sport and permanent wave, Art Deco design and the femme fatale image, Great Depression and premonitions of war – those years were glamorous and full of contradictions. Unique and elegant dresses out of the collection of Alexandre Vassiliev, as well as an array of fashion accessories, will provide a full cultural immersion into the era, known as the “pre-war chic”.

Small but quite interesting if you are a lady. No men's fashion in here. There is a cafe next door and entrance fee gives 'discount'. Near the river so a place to go if you ate in the area.

The main area of Riga Fashion Museum is currently devoted to a wonderful exhibition of the twenties. Obviously clothes are the focal point. If you have been told about the twenties but have never seen any of the clothes you find they are a paradox....More

We chanced upon this charming museum, good find. The clothes and shoes from the 20’s are fascinating, good variety. Seeing the intricate work was awesome.

The mannequin outside wearing 18C European dress and a parasol is not really representative as there was not much of that style inside; also there was a whole room almost all dedicated to Chinese fashion. However, there were some outfits described with who they had...More
