  1. Wonderful! Would love to see that exhibition. In the municipal museum here in town is currently an exhibition about Chanel which I haven’t seen yet. I will check that one out soon!

  2. Super gorgeous photos and a wonderful introduction!
    In The Netherlands we had a similar exhibition in Rotterdam in May of this year.
    You can find some photos on my blog (‘mr. Jean Paul Gaultier and me …’ and ‘Showstopper’)
