Vogue Paris magazine has been creating, analysing and anticipating fashion trends for over a century now. The exhibition offered by the Palais Galliera is based artifacts from the archives of the magazine, presenting more than 400 photographs, illustrations, magazines, films and documents as well as a selection of haute-couture items. It focusses on the key players who made the magazine what it is today, including editors, photographers, illustrators and, of course, the recurring iconic personalities who have featured on the magazine’s covers.
