Back Side Fashion From Behind

Back Side Fashion From Behind
This original exhibition questions the perception that we have of our back and of the backs of others. The majestic train of a court gown,
the weight of a backpack, the sensuality of a plunging neckline, the constraints of a fastening system...

By bringing together pieces from both museums and fashion houses with roaring names such as Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Elsa Schiaparelli, Azzedine Alaïa, Martin Margiela and Olivier Theyskens. The exhibition presents an exceptional collection of clothing and accessories from the 18th century up to the present day.

An exhibition organized with the Palais Galliera, Fashion museum of the City of Paris, Paris Musées

Untitled Migrant  by Margherita Isola

This exhibition highlights stories that talk about movements, journeys, territories and roots; their storytellers are migrants.

While walking through the streets and during the workshops she organises for migrants, Margherita asked them to create an affective map based on the "geo-affective maps" used in family therapy. She then reproduced these maps by embroidering them onto clothes supplied by the migrants themselves. These creations are the result of conversations and meetings between the artist and the migrants.
