An exhibition for the 400th anniversary of the Romanovs' House will unfold two captivating subjects: fashion and style of the Russian empresses.
Fashion is due to the fact that fashion and the woman are inseparable, whereas style reflects a person's character and tastes.
The exposition hinges on seven Russian empresses' life limited to palace apartments (late 18th -- early 20th centuries). Finery, accessories, and jewelry of the wives and mothers of Russian emperors astounded with their refinement and luxury and were a part of the image of the Russian power.
Visitors will see dresses from collections of the Hermitage Museum and the Gatchina Memorial Estate, as well as paintings, engravings, porcelain and jewelry, diaries, letters, drawings, photos and books.
The exhibition Russian Empresses: Fashion and Style. Late 18th -- early 20th centuries will be held in the Showroom of the Federal Archives from April 4 to June 13.
