"Korea Now! Design, craft, fashion and graphic design in Korea"
On the occasion of the France‑Korea year inauguration, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs will be showing more than 700 works by artists, craftsmen, designers, fashion and graphic designers, translating the eclectic mix of styles, tastes and contemporary creations of this artistic heritage.
The Chanel Cruise 2015/16 collection was presented in Seoul, center of cultural melting pot and creative effervescence. Two silhouettes of this collection are featured in this exhibition, illustrating the originality of the traditional Korean costume, the “Hanbok”, as a source of inspiration.
This initiative reflects the fact that fashion design is now a major aspect of France‑Korean cultural exchanges.

This new exhibition, staged by the Hasselt Fashion Museum in Belgium, invites the visitor to step into the world of the Roaring Twenties, exploring the period's history and context as well as its influence on today’s fashions.
Gabrielle Chanel was one of the era’s most influential figures, as a challenger of conventions, dismissing traditional feminine codes for an avant-garde wardrobe with a masculine allure.
The exhibition presents 10 designs from the Chanel archives.

Pigalle Paris and its designer Stephane Ashpool on Friday scooped the 2015 ANDAM Fashion Award, a prize dedicated to young designers based in France.
The other finalists in the category were Japanese label Anrealage, Turkish designer Umit Benan, Pallas Paris and the Vêtements label. For Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel Fashion and President of Paraffection ateliers, "There were five very different candidates, all very passionate, who made remarkable presentations. "Pigalle is a nascent adventure, taking into consideration the age of the label and its owner," he continued. "It's a great story, full of spirit and creativity, with a true sense of craftsmanship. And we will only get to know each other better. Pigalle will be able to grow its collections using the know-how of our Paraffection ateliers." The laureate will receive a year's worth of mentoring from Bruno Pavlovsky, as well as an endowment of 250,000 euros.
Stéphane Ashpool launched Pigalle Paris in October 2008 with the
opening of an avant-garde multibrand boutique in the Paris neighborhood he grew up in and where he formed a creative collective with friends. On top of providing support for young designers, the association, presided over by Pierre Bergé, has as its mission "strengthening Paris's renown as the world's fashion capital". Several ANDAM laureates have gone on to become major designers, like Martin Margiela, the duo Viktor & Rolf and Christophe Lemaire. In 2014 the prize went to Dutch designer Iris van Herpen.
