About museum

The idea to open this museum was seized by Olga Parle, a designer from Nizhny Novgorod, a few years ago. Having familiarised herself with the work of Nadezhda Lamanova, she was struck by the talent and destiny of this amazing woman. Today Lamanova is called the first Russian fashion designer and “Russian Chanel”.

The museum was opened in the year of the 160th anniversary of Nadezhda Petrovna Lamanova’s birth in the historical part of Nizhny Novgorod, on the old winding street of Zapochainya.

The museum will open to you the mysterious world of fashion:

– will introduce you to the biography of the great Russian fashion designer Nadezhda Petrovna Lamanova;

– will surprise you with the history of irons from ancient times to the present day;

– will reveal the mystery of the Cornet de Bal;

– will tell the most interesting things about sewing machines;

– will reveal the secrets of sartorial art;

– will give an opportunity to make a wish on a magic button!

The museum presents unique collections of sewing machines, thimbles, irons, cameras, antique items of men’s and women’s wardrobe, tools for creating clothes.
