Back Side, Fashion from Behind

Fashion & Lace Museum

  • Expo

Unpublished. This subject of exhibition is new. The back in fashion has never been
addressed as such. Through the discovery of 70 exceptional pieces of clothes and accessories, the 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.
From Parisian haute couture to contemporary prêt-à-porter, from the uniform to the straight jacket, Back Side - Fashion From Behind, brings together clothes that reveal the back's multiple identities.
