The first exhibition presented by the National Museum of Decorative Arts is entitled Las costuras femeninas de la Moda de España (1930 – 2018) (Female Seamstresses in Spanish Fashion), a project organised via collaboration between the EFE News Agency, the Association of Spanish Fashion Creators and the museum itself. The exhibition offers the public a selection of around 50 journalistic photographs from the photo archives of the EFE News Agency, in a dialogue with garments by Spanish designers and accessories like jewellery, hats and shoes. The images of the exhibitions, captured without the editing or preparation that fashion photography requires, show women wearing fashion creations, without the endless filters that specialised magazines tend to employ. Even the models, filing down the catwalks, are not exposed objects, but instead are active individuals doing their professional jobs.
