One of the most precious museums, the Palais Galliera – Musée de la Mode, in Paris reopened its doors in July 2014 for an exhibition about Paris, fashion and the 1950s.

It is an event among fashion addicts. On July, 12, 2014, the Museum Galliera will open its doors for a new exhibition dedicated to the 50’s. The remarkable pieces making up this exhibition – some 100 models and accessories – recount the evolution of the female form through the decade 1947–1957. Basically, from the birth of the New Look movement to the death of Christian Dior and the advent of Yves Saint Laurent.

The jewel like building is one of the most precious museums of the city. Unlike many other in Paris, it was especially built to shelter and magnify pieces of art. The Galliera Palace was a gift from a wealthy duchess to the city with the only condition that it would never be something else than a museum.

And a museum it is! The Galliera collection now includes somewhere close to 90 000 items from all times and the palace displays two exhibitions a year on both fashion savoir-faire and designers. In between exhibitions, the museum is closed due to the extreme fragility of its treasures. Talk about playing hard to get. Don’t miss it.
