Mannequin le Corps de la Mode


A couple of weeks ago Marie Laure gave me a ticket for two to an exhibition on fashion and models. I went last night with Georgia. It was at Cité de la mode et du design. A very modern Fashion museum near Le Gare D’Austerlitz. The building is on the river, and is quite iconic. It has a staircase on the edge of the building which is bright green, and looks like a caterpillar, so it definitely stands out. The exhibition was quite small, just two rooms, but was interesting. It was all about models and how they have changed over the years, as what is considered to be ‘beautiful’ has changed. The mannequins above had the tiniest waists! There were a lot of Parisian fashionistas there, but Georgia and I were also surprised at how many men were there and how keen they were!
