Paris of the North


Nordiska museet

2021-09-17 — 2022-09-17

Timeless elegance, exquisite craftsmanship and tailor-made dreams. On September 17 Nordiska museet opens a fashion exhibition that transports you to the golden age of haute couture and the northernmost outpost of Paris fashion – the French Couture Atelier at the NK department store in Stockholm.

The pearl grey salon was the most glamorous arena in Stockholm for the masterpieces of haute couture and the leading atelier in the Nordic countries from the turn of the last century to the 1960s. This was where exquisitely crafted tailor-made creations were made that serve as inspiration to this day.

The exhibition is a tribute to first-class craftsmanship and shows hundreds of garments along with photographs, films, and stories about the people in the legendary studio.

To visit the exhibition, you buy a ticket separately.
