The Jeanne Lavin Exhibit

Musée GallieraIn the Métro, I’ve been seeing all these ads for the Jeanne Lavin exhibition at the Musée Galliera (Paris’ museum of fashion) so I decided to finally check it out today.

There were rooms and rooms of day dresses, evening gowns, wedding gowns, gowns for balls, costumes, and even head pieces! The detailing on some of these dresses was absolutely magnificent. Unfortunately, they wouldn’t allow any photography in the exhibit so I don’t have any photos from inside.
My favorite dress in the entire collection was this black organza party dress from the 20s. There was grey-silver beadwork all along the straps, the plunging neckline illusion, and down the front of the skirt. The color combination was very BlackSwan-esque and I absolutely loved it. The dress wasn’t one of the featured displays so I can’t seem to find a photo of it anywhere online to share with you!

The museum building itself was stunning as well. There was a cute little garden with a bunch of locals hanging around and a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower!
