Structuring Fashion: Foundation Garments through History
An International Conference organised by Johannes Pietsch (Bayerisches Nationalmuseum, Munich) and Jenny Tiramani (The School of Historical Dress, London).

This conference will focus on undergarments that have shaped fashionable silhouettes. It will cover a broad timespan from the Middle Ages up to the 21st century. Conducted in English, the event will be held in Munich to celebrate a very special exhibition and the launch of an exciting new book.

The Bayerisches Nationalmuseum preserves the world-famous pair of silk bodies worn by Countess Palatine Dorothea Sabina around 1598. This extremely rare garment will now be presented to the public exclusively from September to December 2018, which coincides perfectly with the publication of this pair of bodies in the new volume of the Janet Arnold series Patterns of Fashion 5: The cut and construction of bodies, stays, hoops and rumps c.1595-1795, presenting over 40 garments in great detail.

Internationally renowned experts like Valerie Steele (FIT New York), Alexandra Palmer (ROM Toronto), Peter McNeil (UTS Sydney), Amalia Descalzo (ISEM Madrid) and Denis Bruna (MAD Paris) will be among the speakers of the conference.

On Thursday, 13 September, 2018, registration will be from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., then presentations will start. On Friday, 14 September, 2018, presentations will start at 9:00 a.m. For a detailed programme, please check our website, which will be updated regularly.

On Saturday, 15 September, 2018, an additional excursion to the Miedermuseum will be offered, which is a small but unique museum entirely dedicated to corsetry and situated in Heubach, a former centre of European corset industry.
