  • Established in Calais, inside an authentic nineteenth century lace factory, the Museum of Lace and Fashion is a specialist museum for the famous lace woven on looms.

    A museum of both fashion and industry, its vast galleries present the techniques, the lingerie and haute couture associated with this prestigious textile, as well as its most contemporary aspects.
    The high point of a visit to this important museum is to discover the lace weaving looms in operation, those monumental cast iron machines that produce this exceptional fabric.

    Derived from a technique invented in England in the nineteenth century, today lace woven on Leavers looms is primarily produced in Northern France. Sophisticated and innovative, it is contributing to the creative renewal of fashion and luxury in lingerie, clothing and a range of other fields.

    The Museum of Lace and Fashion is a focal hub for fashion. In its exhibition gallery, it showcases great couturiers and renowned young designers alike (Cristóbal Balenciaga, Anne Valérie Hash, Iris Van Herpen, On Aura Tout Vu). Its contemporary gallery is dedicated to the burgeoning scene of up-to-the minute design in textiles and fashion.

    All year-round, the Museum of Lace and Fashion stages a varied selection of activities for individual visitors or groups: cultural activities for families, exchanges-encounters, textile workshops, guided tours, artistic interventions and shows. Enjoying a town-centre location, the museum also offers a number of services: auditorium, restaurant and shop, a resource and archive centre.
