The Designs of Emilie Flöge

Thursday 7 February 2013, 7.00pm | Austrian Cultural Forum London

Emilie Flöge was Gustav Klimt’s lifelong companion and inspiration. Their symbiosis of art and haute couture produced beautiful paintings and beautiful dresses; however, the dresses, though pioneering the new style, were not worn in public. Warburg Institute historian Dorothea McEwan presents an evening of dress design and personal messages.

This lecture is part of the exhibition Another Austria.
