[exhibition] Fashion Forward Exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs

edit: the exhibition is unfortunately closed, but you can find the book here.

At the beginning of the month of May, I took the opportunity of a week of training in Paris to visit a fashion exhibition. It was “Fashion Forward : 3 siècles de mode (1715-2016)” au Musée des Arts Décoratifs. It was stunning! The exhibition displayed more than 300 wardrobe pieces for women, men and children.

It’s always slitghtly moving to be able to look at dresses and shoes more the three centuries old, especially since they are very fragile. I’m not too keen on 18th century dress, I much more prefer texture differences on dresses from the second half of the 19th century.

The scenography of the end of the exhibition was really impressive and allowed visitors to take a peek at the back (and lower part) of the clothes. I’ll let you have a look at the photos!
