Harper’s Bazaar at Musée des Arts Décoratifs






Musée des Arts Décoratifs presente an exhibition from February 28 to July 14, 2020 devoted to the famous American fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar

Harper’s Bazaar, First in Fashion (Premier magazine de mode). To celebrate the reopening of its fashion galleries, entirely renovated thanks to the patronage of Stephen and Christine Schwarzman, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs will present a major exhibition dedicated to Harper’s Bazaar. Harper’s Bazaar. First in Fashion, on view February 28 through July 14, 2020, chronicles the milestones of the magazine and its evolution.
One hundred and fifty two years of fashion history will be summed up through the vision of the great artists and photographers who contributed to the Bazaar’s unique style, from Man Ray, Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol to Richard Avedon, and Peter Lindbergh. Sixty couture and ready-to-wear pieces, most of them drawn from the museum’s collection, along with loans of iconic dresses, will be displayed next to images of them as they were originally featured in the magazine. The exhibition will also include a special tribute to three major figures in Bazaar’s history: Carmel Snow, Alexey Brodovitch, and Diana Vreeland. Together, they created the modern aesthetics both in fashion and graphic design that are still as influential today. The architect and designer Adrien Gardère, who oversaw the renovation of thegalleries, designed the exhibition.
Staged on two floors of the fashion galleries, the exhibition is arranged chronologically around different themes that have emerged throughout Bazaar’s history. It aims both to highlight Bazaar’s contribution to the evolution of the female silhouette over the past 152 years and to show how the magazine’s epochal images were conceived through the sketches, photographs, and patterns that preceded and inspired them. Hours: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday
Address: 107 rue de Rivoli 75001
