Did you know?

2ND EDITION: THE FIRST BRA IN THE WORLD

Did you know that Christine Hardt from Dresden applied for the first patent for a bra in the year 1899? She wanted to free woman from the corset, so she tied up some tissues and a men brace and voilá: “the first bra in the world” was invented! This bra was even adjustable. Back then the usual corset weighted around 5 kilogramme which was really not comfortable nor healthy (it caused unconsciousness, miscarriage and organ bruises). This new bra was worn above the shirt as old sketches show.

At nearly the same time (also in 1899)  Herminie Cadolle from France invented a similar more delicate bra. Till this point of time it is not quite sure who invented the bra first.

We know for sure that the idea to form and hold the womans breast was not new, woman also used leather tape for example to look more manly during sport competitions, like in the ancient Greece in Sparta.

Also the Romans invented some kind of sports wear for woman, which look pretty much like a bra already.

subcultours starts in Dresden

Do you wanna get in touch with the locals while travelling? You do not only want to pass by? You like beeing active?

Then the new startup “subcultours” can help you with that!

“subcultours” connects local artists, bakers, DJ’s, bookbinder, (…) and travellers together. Furthermore do you have the possibility to get a closer view into the subculture of the city of Dresden. Meet other travellers and people who actually live and work in Dresden. You can support the locals and the cities scene! The meetings are usually in English or German language. Please book your favourite workshop a few days in advance!

How does this work exactly?

You can choose out from different workshops which happen frequently in Dresden, organised by Julia, the head of “subcultours” like:

  • LEARN THE BASIC DJ TUNES
  • BAKE YOUR OWN ARTISAN GERMAN BREAD
  • CREATE YOUR OWN SILKSCREEN DESIGN POSTER
  • BAKE YOUR OWN DRESDNER EIERSCHECKE
  • CREATE YOUR PERSONAL TRAVEL DIARY
  • UPCYCLE AND BIND YOUR OWN BOOK
  • CREATE YOUR STREET ART STICKERS
  • CREATE YOUR OWN ORGANIC SCIENCE SHIRT
  • CREATE YOUR ABSTRACT DRESDEN ARTWORK

Meet Andy K, who is a well known street artist in Dresden. He shows you how to create stickers or scrabbles and helps you to find ideas for your next art work. You can ask general questions in a welcoming atmosphere (about the local street art scene or specific questions to Andy K’s street art as well).

Meet street artists from Dresden and create your own street art stickers!

Best thing: you can be creative yourself (material is always inclusive): draw and paint, create music, bake a typical Dresden cake!

 

There are a few more cities, where you can get in contact with the young subcultours crowd:

Costa Rica

Berlin

Leipzig

Here you can see Julia (in the middle), who started subcultoures in Dresden.
