The exhibition presents a a chronological and thematic tour that tells two intertwined stories. From masterpiece to masterpiece, from the 18th century robe volante to the creations of Comme des Garçons, from the wardrobe of the Comtesse Greffulhe to the avant-garde designs of Rick Owens, the visitor is drawn into a history of fashion from the 18th century to the present day. And it is illustrated by the finest pieces in the Palais Galliera, the City of Paris fashion museum. Each chronological section deals with the specific features of that period: from the prints of the 19th century to the cocktail dresses of the 1950s, from the sumptuous materials and patterns of the 1920s to the minimalism of the Belgian and Japanese designers who emerged in the 1980s. Also included is an introduction to the history of the collection. The way it has been built up, its conservation and its presentation over the years all bear witness to a lasting museographic tradition and to the Palais Galliera’s importance in the study of the history of fashion. On display are nearly 350 items from the Museum's prestigious collection.
