Renaissance fashion in paper – The Medici family outside the frame
The paper costumes showed the glamour of the Florentine renaissance court. As the historical costumes are not preserved, art works and portraits have been the inspiration for Isabelle de Borchgrave. She has created things we cannot see in the portraits, the backs of costumes and magnificent hairdos. In the exhibition the Medici family steped outside the frames of the portraits that immortalises them – they are given forms and bodies.
