In December 2014, Designmuseum Danmark opened a permanent exhibition of fashion and textiles – for the first time in the museum’s history. With around 350 exhibits from the museum’s collections, the exhibition provides visitors with a unique perspective into fashion and textile design history.
The exhibition focuses on three themes related to fashion and fabric; Design and Decoration, Handicrafts and Industry, Body and Identity. These themes are reflected in the visual identity where each theme is given a signature, a type of stitch, to make the audience navigate easier within the exhibition. These graphic elements are used actively on text-boards, pamphlets and entrance-tickets as well on merchandise.
