Seen by Christian Lacroix

visuel de la couverture du catalogue Mangareva

The exhibition catalogue: "Women in Orient seen by Christian Lacroix', is an invitation to discover the ancient art of fashion of the women of the Near East.

”It is an anthem to women, a tribute to those who over the centuries have sought to create ways to beautify themselves or simply to exist within a society that has long marginalised them. By their hands, their actions, their tastes and talents, they have given a part of themselves to fabrics and silk or cotton threads, by designing each piece as a work of art.” Hana Al-Banna Chidiac, exhibition curator
