Model in the museum

Featured Video
From February 16 to May 19, Paris's Cité de la Mode et du Design will be taking the public inside the often secret world of fashion behind the scenes and more precisely, modeling. Through 120 photographs, the "Mannequin - le corps de la mode" (Model - the Body of Fashion) exhibition will chart the changes that have occurred in a constantly-evolving industry, from the discreet anonymous version of the model in the XIXth century to the it-girl in the noughties. A selection of images from the exhibition.
