The "Fashion Forward: Three Centuries of Fashion (1715–2015)" exhibition comprises 300 items of women's, men's and children's fashion from the 18th century to the present day, by some of history's most notable designers.
The presented selection features the legendary "Phoebus" cape from Elsa Schiaparelli's "Astrology" Winter 1938-39 Haute Couture collection: a cult piece with gold metallic thread, plates and sequins embroidered into a sun by Lesage.
The exhibition aims to take the audience on a journey through a unique chronological frieze of fashion's landmark events. It gives a glimpse into the evolution of fashion and style, along with the body and appearance, illustrating the specific characteristics of each era.
