Spectacular Paris Haute Couture retrospective exhibition at Musee Galliera

Curated by Musée Galliera’s director, Olivier Saillard, the Paris Haute Couture retrospective exhibition includes 100 of the most spectacular haute couture dresses, comprising a visual survey spanning 150 years of singularly-minded design by the likes of Worth (the founder and father of Haute Couture), Chanel, Vionnet, Schiaparelli, Balenciaga, Courrèges, and even young, contemporary designers such as Alexis Mabille.  On view through 6 July 2013, this is sure to be a benchmark exhibition.
