Théâtre de la Mode: Fashion Dolls: The Survival of Haute Couture

Availability: In stock

Liberation in the fall of 1944 after four years of foreign Occupation found Paris
surviving on minimal resources. Hoping to make a statement to the world that Paris was still the center of fashion, couturiers, jewelers, milliners, hairdressers, and theatre designers joined together to present the Théâtre de la Mode.

Using the ages-old tradition of traveling miniature mannequins dressed in current couture, the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture mobilized a whole industry with unprecedented cooperation and creativity to prove that life could begin again through these 27” tall ambassadors of fashion. This book tells their story.
