Sala del Palacio de Liria con la exposición de la Moda en la Casa de Alba

Exhibition La moda en la Casa de Alba at Palacio de Liria

Exposición La moda en la Casa de Alba en Palacio de Liria

From 19 October to 31 March, the Palacio de Liria is hosting an extraordinary exhibition that presents the close relationship that the House of Alba has maintained with fashion over the centuries.

Thanks to the collaboration of the institution with the Château de Compiègne, the Museo del Traje, Patrimonio Nacional, the Francisco Zambrana Collection and a large number of private collectors, in this wonderful exhibition you can discover unique pieces, both from the painting of our country and the creations of different designers.

La Moda en la Casa de Alba (Fashion in the House of Alba) is a wonderful experience, a conversation between the paintings and the different garments that have been worn by members of the House of Alba and other aristocrats.

The exhibition is curated by two great names in fashion, Eloy Martínez de la Pera and the designer Lorenzo Caprile.

Its organisers wanted to bring together a large collection of Spanish paintings and garments and accessories that create a dialogue between them, within the exhibition space.

Throughout the exhibition, visitors will be able to discover more than 100 pieces including garments made by important names in fashion such as Cristóbal Balenciaga, Charle Frederick Worth, Flora Villareal, Louise Chéruit and Emanuel Ungaro, as well as period accessories. Painting will also have an important presence in ‘Fashion in the House of Alba’, with paintings by great artists such as Ignacio Zuloaga, Joaquín Sorolla and Federico Madrazo, among others.


If you visit the Palacio de Liria between 19 October and 31 March 2024, you can discover many treasures in this exhibition, such as the wedding dress of Eugenia Martínez de Irujo y Fitz-James Stuart, the Goyaesque dresses of Cayetana Rivera y Martínez de Irujo and the majestic wedding dress of Sofía Palazuelo, Duchess of Huéscar, signed by her late aunt, the designer Teresa Palazuelo.
