Style Melbourne

Fashion Stills

Ever wondered what you may see if you joined the French fashion elite alongside the haute couture catwalks or backstage at model fittings? Well, wonder no longer. The Fashion Stills exhibition showcases over 30 photographs by Paris’ finest style shutterbugs.

Derek Hudson, Jean-Marie Périer, Françoise Huguier and Gérard Uféras take you deep into the world of fabric, models, fashion shoots and designers, with their intimate portraits and behind the scenes images. My favourites being a monochrome image of a pair of legs wearing white lace up boots at the end of a staircase, decorated in a waterfall of tulle and a snapshot of Yves Saint Laurent’s work space and inspiration board.

Opening attendees were lucky enough to see the stylings of Christopher Horne and his private designer collection, models rotating on small platforms as we sauntered around the photographs. Horn had put together vintage pieces from as early as the 1930s, accessorised to perfection. Chanel, Balmain and Givenchy were all there, almost close enough to touch.

Capture a glimpse of the frocks, people and personalities involved in some of the most respected French fashion houses and enjoy the trip through the last fifteen years of couture in the city of love.

Find the free Fashion Stills photographic exhibition at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins, 25 Collin Street in Melbourne from  now until Sunday April 17th as part of LMFF’s cultural program.
