Costume and Lace Museum, Belgium

Whilst researching some designs lately, I came across these beautiful garments on display in the Costume and Lace Museum in Belgium.  Built in 1977 it is a clothing museum dedicated to lace and fabric, which were important parts of the textile history of Belgium.  It's such a celebration of quality textiles through the ages, from the 18th to the 20th century and goes to show that good design, workmanship and fabrics stand the test of time.  Here are a few examples:
