EXPO: L'âge d'or de la haute couture dans l'œil de Mark Shaw.

Dior, Balmain, Balenciaga… Le photographe Mark Shaw a immortalisé durant les années 50 défilés, backstage et moments précieux dans les ateliers de haute couture parisiens. Celui qui a été le premier à avoir utilisé la couleur dans les photographies de défilés a collaboré avec de nombreux magazines et travaillé aux côtés de la famille Kennedy. A l'occasion des 70 ans de la maison Dior, la galerie MR14 expose cinquante de ses clichés au cœur d'une scénographie plongeant le visiteur dans un véritable salon de couture.

Mark Shaw, Dans l'univers de la haute couture, Dior, Balmain, Balenciaga, jusqu'au 3 septembre 2017, Galerie MR 14 - 14, rue Portefoin 75003 Paris.

Yes, we’re still alive! Everyone has been dealing with school/college/jobs, so production is gonna be slow for a while (or, at least until I start doing another artist search in a few weeks). Hopefully, this page will be well worth the wait?

Soooo yes, we got ourselves some good ol’-fashioned exposition! I’m sure this will end well for Val and her henchfamily… ;)

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri, April 30, 1904 

Her sleeves are 1830,
And her skirt is ‘61,
Her tresses in the manner
Of Louis Quinze are done.
Her hat is quaint colonial,
Her brooch is pure antique.
Her belt is 1850,
But when you hear her speak
What year the maid belongs to 
You do not wonder more.
Her dress is many periods,
But her slang is 1904.

Melissa Singer: “The shot I’ve waited all night for. I learnt last night from Nicole Kidman that she has the “real” Galliano at home. This one is a runway replica of her 1997 Oscars dress, still hailed as one of the best red carpet gowns of all time.“
