This Tumblr blog is a collaboration between the Europeana Foundation and the Europeana Fashion project. Each month, this Tumblr will showcase a different theme curated by experts from the fashion and cultural heritage community.

This July, Wien Museum displays fashion from the the Ringstrasse era (1857-1914) in Vienna. This period saw the rise of the upper-middle classes and fostered a culture of ’seeing and being seen’. Naturally, fashion responded accordingly.
