Every age, every season has its fashions, but in the street or in parliament, at work or at play, everything wear is subject to rules. And of course those rules are there to be broken. Tenue correcte exigée, quand le vêtement fait scandale revisits the scandals that have marked the great turning points in fashion history from the 14th century to today. Featuring more than 400 garments and accessories, portraits , caricatures and objects , this original and unexpected exhibition explores the liberties taken with dress codes and how they breached moral values.
The exhibition explores three major themes: Dress Codes, Girl or Boy? and Provocative Excess in an exhibition design by Constance Guisset.
