With its daring architecture along the Seine, the Cité de la Mode et du Design museum is a standing site of French fashion. In Paris, it’s a unique centre that features and displays creations, fashion and design. Until May 19, don’t miss the exceptional exhibition « Model, body of fashion ».
Next to the Gare d’Austerlitz, the Cité de la Mode reveals the fascinating « body of fashion ». Sorry, what? It’s the story about modelling, which, in one century, progressed from the status of an inanimate object to that of an icon. With over 120 photos, this is where you’ll discover the wide range of the Parisian fashion, between design and business.
Photos, mannequins, standards. Mainly signed by Horst P. Horst, Helmut Newton, Nick Knight, as well as Juergen Teller, these worldwide known photos of models act in harmony with objects like dressmakers’ dummies, mannequins... Fatal seductions, beauty artifices and standards! http://www.paris-docks-en-seine.fr/
