From January 22 in the History Museum in Moscow will display how children used to dress in the century before the last one.
Childhood history is one of the favourite subjects of pop cultural science, and it is mostly investigated on the samples of children's fashion, which considerably changed several times in the course of 300 years.
Stages of these changes will be shown in this exposition. From the 18th century, when babies were swaddled due to the belief that the a newborn’s soft body would not take proper shape if it was not fixed hard with cloth ribbons, till the 1900s with convenient nice sailor’s blouses and a bourgeois cult of touching little pink-checked angels.
The exhibition runs till April 8.
