A look at 100 years of Vogue Paris transforms Palais Galliera into a walk through fashion history.
Paris's fashion museum, Palais Galliera, is hosting Vogue Paris 1920-2020, a retrospective look at the oldest French fashion magazine. The art exhibition is a colourful ode to the iconic magazine, which has represented and influenced not only the Parisian and French, but also international readers. The evolution of fashion is seen through the covers and pages exhibited with the transformation of the magazine told through the decades via images captured by great fashion photographers that worked closely with the publication including Helmut Newton, Peter Lindbergh and Inez & Vinoodh. The evolution of fashion photography is also seen through the eyes of the photographers from print to digital with behind-the-scene videos shown throughout the exhibition. Punctuated by iconic designs including Yves Saint Laurent’s Mondrian dress, the show also illustrates the influence of each editor-in-chief of the magazine over the years on its pages. Stunning, interesting and iconic, the images strike a fashionable chord with the audience whilst at times becoming controversial under the gaze of today’s woke culture, making the fashion magazine even more a work of art than ever.
