Fashion Magazines can be powerful instruments of freedom of expression, information and cultural creation.

From 12 June to 27 September, the Rijksmuseum presents a major retrospective of its rich collection of costume and fashion prints for the first time. The change in women's and men's fashion from the year 1600 up to and including the first half of the 20th century, and the development of the fashion magazine into the fashion glossies we know today, can be seen in more than 300 prints. The exhibition was designed by Christian Borstlap, in collaboration with fashion illustrators Piet Paris and Quentin Jones.
