Pubisher's description: For one century, the great fashion designers have constantly been exalting the creations of choreographers. Coco Chanel and the Russian Ballets, Gianni Versace and Maurice Béjart, Christian Lacroix and then Balmain by Olivier Rousteing and the Ballet of the Paris Opera, Issey Miyake and William Forsythe: the examples are as numerous as prestigious. With “Dance and Fashion Designers”, the National Centre of Stage Costume pays a tribute to these glorious collaborations and presents for the first time in its exhibition spaces a selection of 120 costumes in showcases imagined as jewellery boxes, enriched by pictures and videos. Created by journalist and author Philippe Noisette and designed by architect and artist Marco Mencacci, the exhibition unveils a genuine ballet of shapes and materials in which the immobility of the costume gives way to the motion of the dance.
