Not that I ever need a reason to go to Paris, but if you do, here are five fashion exhibits worth checking out!
Irving Penn was one of the 20th century’s greatest photographers, known for his work in Vogue. This exhibit shows his work through more than 235 of his photographic prints.

Being Modern: MoMa in Paris
If you can’t decide between Paris and New York, here’s the best of both worlds: Fondation Louis Vuitton has borrowed a selection of artworks from New York’s Museum of Modern Art, to showcase the museum’s history of collecting. Some artworks will be shown in Paris for the first time ever, including Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans.

Yves Saint Laurent
Earlier this month the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris opened it’s doors, nearly 15 years after the haute couture house closed. The location is the same, and today serves as the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent – and now also the unique exhibition showing some of Yves Saint Laurent’s most iconic pieces: the tuxedo, the Mondrian dress, the safari jacket. In other words: a must to visit.

Rumor has it that a retrospective exhibition dedicated to Martin Margiela will open at Palais Galliera in March 2018. I got a look of the avant-garde designer and his time at Hermès earlier this year at MoMu in Antwerp (pictured above), I’d love to see even more of his brilliant work at an exhibit not only showing his work for Hermès but his own brand too.

Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve
I visited the Dior exhibit earlier this year, and I can only say one thing: amazing! With Maria Grazia Chiuri’s arrival to Dior I’ve only become a bigger fan of the old fashion house, and seeing 70 years of couture history in this exihibit is just incredible.
