He would have liked to be a museum curator and became a story inventor and curator instead.

This exhibition mirrors 20 years of fashion designer Christian Lacroix’s creations and the collections from the Musée de la Mode et du Textile. Invited to visit the museum reserve collections, C.Lacroix methodically sorts them by theme, turning time on its head: white, colour, stripes, polka dots, tartan, flowers, styles, patchwork, as well as liturgy, “Arlésienne” or spider-sewn pattern. The result: some of the most beautiful “wardrobes” of the world, a clever inventory of a century of fashion and a celebration of 20 years of the fashion designer’s creations, along with anecdotes, words, and stories.
