Papier Glacé.
A century of fashion photography at Condé Nast

1 March - 25 May 2014

Palais Galliera, Musée de la mode de la ville Paris



Photographic art flirts with elegance and seduction. In the exhibition “Papier glacé (glossy paper) a century of fashion photography at Condé Nast”, 150 photographs by the most significant fashion photographers working between 1918 and today are on show: Baron Adolf de Meyer, Edward Steichen, George Hoyningen-Huene, Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton, Erwin Blumenfeld and Irving Penn, Guy Bourdin, William Klein, David Bailey, Helmut Newton, Bruce Weber, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and Miles Aldridge, to name but a few.


The photos come from the archives in the cities where Condé Nast publishes, such as New York, London, Paris and Milan. The group’s publications include Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour and GQ, playing an important role in fashion photography for a hundred years. In addition, the exhibition has 15 haute couture models on display that are part of the fashion museum’s collection, around 50 issues of various Condé Nast magazines, and contemporary films showing the possible future of fashion photography. After showing in Berlin, Milan and Edinburgh, the exhibition will travel to Zurich, West Palm Beach and Tokyo.
