Documentary about Karl Lagerfeld
For a gentle awakening ... we offer a Fashion report broadcast a few weeks ago on the very famous Karl Lagerfeld. Designer, photographer, publisher, interior architect and costume designer, Karl Lagerfeld was a jack of all trades. Death surprises him on February 19, 2019 at the age of 85, when he was working on new collections, a photo exhibition and book publishing. Who was he? Who was he inspired by?
The exhibition "Fashion in the 19th century"
Go to the museum, without even moving a finger, or almost! "La mode au XIXème siècle" is a virtual exhibition offered by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris to visit from home. In the 19th century, between progress and tradition, while the male costume quickly lost its luster, the women’s fashion, on the contrary, sought more and more opulence. If luxury production was not born in the 19th century, it takes on a more commercial dimension. Thus, new methods of promoting fashion items appear and the industrial revolution allows productivity gains. An exhibition that we invite you to discover in pictures.
