Museum of Fashion in Malaga is worthy of a visit and should be included in any Malaga itinerary. Any Warhol’s famous “campbell’s soup” dress.

 Malaga Fashion Museum: (Things to do in Malaga)

A while back, Federico and l had visited the Auto museum here in the city of Malaga, which l wrote about here. It is actually a car and fashion museum. The owner, that very wealth man from Portugal, Joao Magalhaes, has a passion for both cars and haute couture.

This is  a very smart move in my opinion. You gotta love one or the other. I happen to like both. While he drooled over the cars that l was not interested in, l spent a fair amount of time imagining myself in all these beautiful designer clothes, in a bigger size of course. :-). It is so cool for the auto museum to include fashion since they go hand in hand.

Lovely dresses at malaga fashion museum.

Andy Warhol – the famous Campbell’s soup dress designed by the quirky artist is displayed at the automobile and fashion museum Malaga.


flapper dress and auto at car museum malaga spain

How l would have loved to be a flapper girl in the 20’s and 30’s. They just always looked like they had so much fun, save for the gangster boyfriends of course. Another interesting automobile at the car museum Malaga.

Some of the clothes are paired with cars belonging to the owners or the owner’s girlfriends etc. and they have little placards attached to them with a bit of history. They were written in both English and Spanish, which helped a lot as we did not spring for the cost of headphones.

A lot of the dresses and hats belonged to both socialites like Wallis Simpson and Peggy Guggenheim, and celebrities like Eva Peron, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Madonna and Ava Gardner.

I love this outfit. Matador inspired dress at fashion museum malaga

Fashion museum Malaga – I love this outfit. Kind of a combination fancy dress and matador look.

I spotted a black dress that looked familiar, and upon reading the plaque, confirmed that it was a lovely black gown that l had seen on Naomi Campbell on the internet. There was also a variation of Madonna’s famous cone bra outfit that was also designed by Jean Paul Gauthier. It was right next to the car that she had used on one of her concert tours.

Malaga city break – visit the car and fashion museum for the most amazing vintage handbags and luggage.


fashion museum hats at fashion museum Malaga

Beautiful pill box hats are just some of the things to see in Malaga. I think Audrey Hepburn herself would have loved these.

Malaga tourism itinerary must – Bet that Chanel necklace is worth a pretty penny. Car buffs can check out the auto museum while fashionistas can check out the fashion museum section.

Here’s a video to show you the interior of the fantastic auto and fashion museum:

I definitely think visiting the fashion museum is one of the top things to do in Malaga. It is so huge inside and has insanely beautiful cars and outfits. You won’t be disappointed.

Pretty amazing things to see in Malaga – I love the way everything is put together in the museum.

Designers at Malaga Auto Museum:

The designers include Balmain, Ungaro, Yves Saint Laurent, Lanvin and Channel and that perennial favorite, Louis Vuitton. This fashion museum is a place one could easily spend a few hours, like we did. The place is available, as are the cars for functions such as weddings. There is actually a chapel inspired by the Moulin Rouge. I think l could totally get into that, a 20’s flapper styled wedding.

The car collection is over 25 million Euros. I think it is a safe bet that the collection of fashion dresses, hats, and vintage luggage here, also runs into the millions. The crazy thing is, l don’t think this guy even lives in Spain! If this was my collection, you can bet l would have a penthouse view of it :-), and spend all day saying “my precious” :-) :-) :-). Plan on spending at least three hours to see a pretty good chunk of it.

This fashion museum to me, is a must see if you find yourself in Malaga.

Entrance fee to the Malaga Fashion and Car Museum combination:

A very reasonable €7.50 for general admission.
