Last night while us Americans were celebrating the 4th of July, Swarovski honored Hussein Chalayan during Paris Haute Couture Week for the debut of his retrospective exhibition, ‘Recits de Mode’ at Les Arts Décoratifs. The exquisite collection showcases pieces of his work over then span of his career and six pieces that display his extensive work with Swarovski over the past five years.
Fashion VIP like Anna dello Russo, Suzy Menkes, Betony Vernon, Véronique Nichanian (Hermès), Jean-Paul Goude, Peter Copping (Nina Ricci), Sarah Lerfel (Colette), Victoire de Pourtales, Cameron Silver, Anthony Vaccarello (ANDAM 2011 winner), Hélène David-Weill, Pamela Golbin and Béatrice Salmon were all in attendance and continued the celebration at exclusive dinner at Le Salon des Boiseries hosted by Nadja Swarovski and Hélène David-Weill, President of les Arts Décoratifs.
The exhibition will run until the 13th of November and is definitely worth visiting if you are in Paris. Hussein Chalayan has always been known for his visionary and creative work and this collection of his best pieces and thoughts are not to be missed by any fashion lover.
