The first session in the series takes place on October 7. Fashion on Display investigates the shifting practices, strategies, and contexts of fashion display in France from 1900 to 1937. This time period is bookended by two international exhibitions held in Paris that presented fashion to the public in novel ways. Developments in mannequin design, styling, and scenography will be explored in relation to changing ideas and values associated with fashion in national and imperial contexts.
