  1. Fabulous interpretation – the mix of art and fashion was, I presume, also mixed in with music during the actual show? Very cool imagery. Thanks!

    • oh, of course, and one room was wall to wall video screens showing clips from the films and videos he’s dressed. Also, notice how the mannequins in the top and bottom shots have faces. Projectors mounted into the ceiling projected faces onto many of the mannequins, so they looked like they were talking, smiling, crying, singing. Speakers inside of them gave them voices, most in French. It was pretty amazing.

    Excellent shots… I love fashion art photos. 😉

    • Me too … and I was amazed that they actually allowed photography in the exhibit. I’ve found that most museums can be militant about photography, so I was really happy to be able to take shots with being sneaky about it.

        That is awesome! Lucky you. I’ve had to be swift with my photos at every fashion exhibit I’ve attended because of the militancy… The photos I got were worth the memory but not the headache. 😆 I so get it. 🙂
