Following an 18th century custom of presenting fashion creations to the world on petite dolls, couture designers such as Balenciaga, Jacques Fath, Elsa Schiaparelli and Nina Ricci’s son set out to re-establish Paris as the center of fashion after World War II.
These legendary fashion designers created miniature clothing, Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels produced jewelry, and artists built tiny stage sets for the fashion collections.
The exhibition opened at the Louvre Museum in Paris and was enormously popular, drawing in 100,000+ visitors. Later the couture fashion dolls travelled to Barcelona, London, Leeds, Copenhagen, Vienna, New York and San Francisco.
“Theatre De La Mode” not only helped Paris regain its title as the worldwide center of fashion, but also helped to bolster the war relief effort.
Exhibition will present the 2013 calendar collection, inspired by this unique undertaking in fashion history.
