Paris – "Smoking Forever" – Exhibition
This fashion exhibition revolves around one garment in particular: the power suit.  But this time, it’s the women who are wearing it.  When designer Yves Saint Laurent dressed his female models in male clothing in the 60s, he marked an important stage not only on the fashion timeline but also in the development of a woman’s role in society.  Visit this fascinating exhibition to see how fashion helps mould and shape the world we live in.
