The exhibition was created at Sofitel Le Faubourg in Paris and reveals the stars of fashion photography including works by Derek Hudson, Françoise Huguier, Jean-Marie Périer and Gérard Uféras. They capture rare and immortalized moments on and off the runway to unveil the highly intimate and private world behind Haute Couture masters such as Dior, Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Yves St Laurent.
