On Saturday we set off to go see the exhibiton 'The 18th century Back in Fashion', which promised ot display contemporary pieces of haute couture and ready-to-wear, from the likes of top designers and fashion houses such as Vivienne Westwood, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Balenciaga or Olivier Theyskens for Rochas. The exhibition was being held in the Grand Trianon, so whilst we were there we made a little detour to the Petit Trianon, a much more refined, in my opinion, area of escape from the extravagances of the court for the Queen. The following pictures are my snapshots from our visit.
Here are some pictures of the exhibition catalogue - simply sumptuous.
