Yves Saint Laurent Retrospective – 40 years of Creation – Paris
A first retrospective on the works of Yves Saint Laurent – This exhibition covers 40 Years of Creation (1962 to 2002) by Yves Saint Laurent – since the beginning of the couturier at the House of Dior in 1958.
Yves Saint Laurent revolutionized women’s wardrobe by borrowing the styles of menswear such as tuxedos and suits in his creations. In so doing, YSL dramatically transformed the dress codes and changed the lives of women throughout the second half of the twentieth century. Power dressing became the domain of women as well.
Through more than 300 models, many drawings, documents and films, the Petit Palais – Musée des Beaux Arts in Paris City pays tribute to one of the greatest couturier of the second half of the twentieth century.
This exhibition is sure to fascinate those who are interested in the history of fashion and designer wear … and we know that there are many of you out there.
