The city of Hague is known as the home of Dutch court and nobility and for its reputation of high sophistication and refinement. The gowns displayed at Gemeentemuseum were worn by ladies of the court at receptions, dinners, balls, weddings and also during times of mourning and each item of clothing showed high class: beautiful colors, incredibly long trains, dazzling gold and silver embroidery and expensive lace from the Belle Époque.
