Challengez tout

Challenge everything

Immerse yourself in the history of fashion and consumption and question everything with these three exhibitions.

The Department Stores, initiated by daring entrepreneurs in the 1850s, accompanied the emergence of fashion and its democratization.

Au Bon Marché, Les Grands Magasins du Louvre, Au Printemps, La Samaritaine, and Les Galeries Lafayette made fashion accessible and influenced it, inventing sales and mail order sales.

The exhibition “The Birth of Department Stores” traces their emergence and impact until today.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, dancer, photographer, stylist, sculptor, also became a model for recognized photographers.

Considered the first “Top model” in history, she paved the way for those who would become the stars of the fashion shows.

The exhibition dedicated to him retraces his history and shows previously unpublished photos.

Almost 100 years later, artists from Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway are questioning the very foundations of fashion, and questioning the boundary between fashion and art.

A new generation that demonstrates a critical eye and makes innovative proposals to take fashion in a new direction.
