Presented in partnership with 1814 Magazine and Maison Christian Lacroix, this exhibition features the world of haute couture in the early 1990s. Shown alongside Donna DeMari's behind-the-scenes photographs of supermodels preparing for Paris Fashion Week and runway footage from the Paris catwalk, the TFC offers ten haute couture and high fashion ensembles by Balmain, Oscar de la Renta, Hubert de Givenchy, Christian Lacroix, and Valentino. Together these illustrate a highly charged mement in fashion history when haute couture faced the challenge of defining itself and fashion was defined by superstar models.
