The oldest find in the collection, preserved in fragments, is a remnant of a woman's brown cloth garment and jewellery. It comes from the tomb of the Herberstein family from Betnava near Maribor, dating from the 1630s. The other grave finds consist of the clothing and footwear of the parish priest Andrej Tavčar from Stari trg near Slovenj Gradec, dating from 1638.

From the 18th century, there is a silk men's 'justaucorps' jacket, a man's tailcoat with silk floral ornamentation, men's silk waistcoats, ladies' bodices, purses, headdresses, a pair of ladies' shoes, fans and an ivory scratching pad, which was used to reach under the wig or behind the corset to relieve itching.

Two pairs of ladies' heelless shoes dating from the beginning of the 19th century, marking the Empire period, have been preserved. The second half of the 19th century includes ladies' shoes, handbags and purses, headdresses and waistcoats, men's black tails, blouses, corsets and ladies' dresses of various cuts.

Most of the material dates from the 20th century. It includes women's, men's and children's clothing, footwear, headwear and various fashion accessories, and is complemented by contemporary creations.
