From Origins to Fashion's Pinnacle: The Ascent of Jeans

Who would have thought that an item designed for the working class would become the iconic symbol of modern fashion? From Levi's to Versace, jeans have conquered both the streets and the most elite catwalks.

Step into Jeans, from the Streets to the Ritz, a journey that takes you from the humble beginnings of denim to its coronation as the standout garment of the 20th and 21st centuries. Discover how it transitioned from a symbol of masculinity to one of female empowerment, witnessing progress and becoming a pillar of modernity. Delve into its variations, its impact on film, music, fashion, and its commitment to a sustainable future.

More than just an exhibition, this is an experience that celebrates the versatility and grandeur of jeans, the garment that, as Yves Saint Laurent once said, rightfully took the Ritz.

Don't miss this fascinating odyssey of jeans. From 24th November 2023 to 17th March 2024, in the Temporary Exhibition Room of the Museo del Traje. Free entry subject to capacity.

At ¡Ánimo, valiente!, we join this celebration and invite you to be a part of this legacy! Explore our special collaboration and immerse yourself in the denim revolution.
