Les Arts Decoratifs

This is on my must see list on my next visit to Paris.......I don't know how I've managed not to have visited the Musee des Arts de la Mode ( in the Pavilion de Marsan) in the Louvre all these years. I've been fortunate to have visited the Louvre several times but never was I even aware of this amazing (over 81,000 works! ) display which " trace the history of costume from the Regency period to the present-day and innovations in textiles since the 7th century ". Highlights include Paul Poiret, Madeleine Vionnet, Elsa Schiaparelli and Christian Dior.
