A Tasty Influence

The Palace of Versailles and the Musée Galliera invite you to join them for a taste of the 18th century, featuring fashions spanning from the 1700’s up until the present.

Set against the pink marbled splendor of Versailles’ Grand Trianon palace, “A Taste of the 18th century” seamlessly blends opulent couture creations of old with modern day pieces by all-stars Vivienne Westwood, Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Lacroix, Nicolas Ghesquière, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Rei Kawakubo, Olivier Theyskens, Thierry Mugler, and (surprisingly) Yohji Yamamoto, showcasing the profound influence 18th century styles have had on recent centuries’ fashion.

Get inspired as you traipse through this stunning exhibit, where the past meets the present and absolutely everything on display is beautifully made and ready to be admired, no matter what year it was sewn.
