My friend’s grandmother used to wear this elegant traditional attire, but these days it’s getting to be a rare sight.
The exhibit was one level up and you can take the stairs or the lift. It’s on for quite long – till February next year.
I wonder how much the outfits are worth. The exhibit was heavily guarded.
At the lobby, we were told that photography is allowed, but not flash photography. Sorry about the blurry images. Guess you’ll have to go check it out in person.
The lace was adopted from the lace worn by the Dutch and Eurasians in the early 1900’s. The 1920’s and 30’s were the hey day of Peranakan fashion.
You can buy a Sarong Kebaya at the True Blue Shoppe at the entrance.
