The work of Yves Saint Laurent encompasses many emblematic designs, including the three-quarter length coat, evening suit, trench coat and jumpsuit. The designer revolutionised fashion in the XXth century as part of his greatest project: the wardrobe of today's woman.
The exhibition at the DS WORLD PARIS retraces almost 40 years of haute couture design and French know how, from the beginnings of Saint Laurent at Dior, his move to rue Spontini, and then to avenue Marceau, home to the house of Saint Laurent from 1974. This series of 36 photos takes us into the designer's world. We are able to visit the workshops and watch the excitement behind the scenes at the major fashion shows that forged the success and renown of Saint Laurent all over the world. The exhibition shows the designer preparing his shows, adjusting a garment or quietly working on his own. It gives us a fleeting and discreet peek into the life of the most intriguing and mysterious of French fashion designers.
