How did Croats change the world of fashion?

Academia Cravatica, an institution dedicated to the historical research and promotion of the symbolic values of the cravat, has organised the celebration of the 350th anniversary of naming the cravat (May 20th) with the following programme:


*changing of the Cravat-Regiment guards, on St Mark’s Square beginning at 12 o’clock
*opening of the “The Croats, the French and the Cravat” exhibition in the assembly hall of Klovićevi Dvori, beginning at 12:30


The aim of this programme is the promotion of the symbolic values of the cravat and as a reminder of how the cravat, named after the Croats, was accepted in the French court and thus entered through the great door into the world of fashion and has held its place there where to this day, where it has experienced many transformations, however, it has remained an important fashion detail promoting the fundamental values of society.
