In 2019, The Phoebus Foundation organised Lace is More!: an opulent exhibition that introduced visitors to five centuries of cultural history. It focused on lace clothing and accessories as true status symbols, which were often passed on from mother to daughter, or from father to son. The exhibition showed how lace evolved from underwear to outerwear and back again, and which pioneering role the family business Van de Velde played in this. Today, lace inspires many artists and designers to create high fashion and art.
