Alber Elbaz x Lanvin will host a Manifesto Photo Exhibition orchestrated by Alber Elbaz and his teams in September 2015. This exhibition immerses the visitor in the intimacy of the fittings, the excitement of the Lanvin shows and the beauty of its designs. This is the first in history of the oldest French fashion house still in operation today.
Five rooms are designed as setting showcasing the work of the designer - not as a monolouge, but as a continuous dialouge between fashion and photography.
Over 350 shots by photographers such as But Sou Lai, Mark Leibowitz, Katy Reiss, James Bort, Juliette Da Cunha and Alex Koo reinterpret a passion for fashion.
A video facility featuring the voice of the designer, illustrated by three projections of backstage images produced by Jean-Christophe Moine and showing footage of the shows captured by Seraphin Ducellier, complements the exhibition's design.
"In this digital age, we live through our screens, documenting the moment. We no longer look, we film. We no longer listen, we tape and we no longer talk, we post." Says Alber Elbaz.
