I  had a blast discovering the archive of Eva Maria Hatschek (1924-2010),a Swiss woman who had an extraordinary collection of clothes designed, but not made, by designers including, Coco Chanel Hubert de Givenchy and other couture masters of the 1940’s and beyond.The Temporary Fashion Museum( het nieuw instituut ) houses over 600 pieces from her personal wardrobe. As the wife of an important Swiss industrial, she was in the privileged position to wear couture every day. Literally everything she wore was made by the great couturiers or custom made by a dressmaker on the basis of patterns that were purchased at the big fashion houses - a practice that was still quite prevalent back then.
