There can be no museum without a collection. For this reason the largest gallery in the Temporary Fashion Museum is devoted to a series of unique collections, from the private and professional to the public and commercial. From the private haute couture collection of Eva Maria Hatschek to a public, commercial archive in the form of a vintage store, assembled by Ferry van der Nat, with iconic pieces from the history of Dutch and international fashion. Visitors can choose how they wish to experience these displays. Depending on thie condition and status, some of the pieces can be touched, tried on and purchased.
