Fashion Past & Present at Cite de la Mode et du Design, Paris

4 Jun

Could I possibly be more impressed with Paris, it seems so.  When I discovered that Comme de Garçons Rei Kawakubo was exhibiting her S/S 2012 collection at the stunning new Cité de la Mode et du Design, situated right on the Seine, an amazing concentration of fashion design, education and exhibition.  With lecture rooms, boutiques, a fashion library, and of course the amazing contrast of exhibits with Cristobal Balenciaga’s stunning haute couture creations and antique inspirations beside  Rei Kawakubo’s anti-fashion all white show in an adjoining space.

At Balenciaga the detail was amazing, a silhouette was created and then reinvented.
