The interactive biography of Yves Saint Laurent at the YSL Museum

 

 

 

 

The YSL museum site offers another way to enter the creator’s universe through his “interactive biography” retracing the life and work of Yves Saint Laurent, its life and work with Pierre Bergé, from the pair’s personal lives and convictions to Saint Laurent’s signature designs and the history of the haute couture house.

We also advise you to take a look at the part devoted to the work of YSL for the cinema: for each creation are placed the original sketch, the outfit -same and the version worn by the actress in the film. The opportunity to see how a dress transforms from the one who created it … to the one who wears it.

BALENCIAGA: MASTER CRAFTSMAN

 

 

 

 

Although there are 2500 renowned exhibitions on Google Arts and Culture as online tours and collections, one virtual exhibition to not miss is the exhibit of BALENCIAGA, known as ‘The Master’ of Haute Couture, coming from the V&A’s extensive archives of the Spanish fashion designer’s cove-table creations. We can see there how Balenciaga changed the shape of women’s fashion in the ’50s and ’60s by creating sculptural forms that stood away from the body to visualizing how the inimitable designer constructed his historical evening dresses.

Marie Antoinette queen of France in the 18th century, was perhaps the very first fashion icon in the history of France and her outfits worn at the court of the chateau of Versailles never ceased to inspire all over the world designers. It is therefore logical that Marie Antoinette was celebrated in this virtual exhibition at the Chateau de Versailles.
