CultureSecrets invites you to discover the exhibition "Alaïa before Alaïa" during a private visit under the sublime glass roof of the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation. You will find unpublished archives: photos, drawings, as well as the first pieces that made the reputation of the Franco-Tunisian couturier.
This exhibition through a selection of very high quality, tells the years of learning of the designer and revelation to the world of his talent and style. Timeless clothes that trace his early inspirations, and his vision of the world of fashion. This is the portrait that emerges through his concepts: we perceive a modest personality, and intimately linked to the women who surround him. They are literally his first source of inspiration. The women of his close circle are the embodiment of the support he needed to achieve his ambitions. It was through their contact that he developed his technique and his unique artistic spirit. Testimonies of his family, in the form of archives, accompany you throughout the exhibition... Finally, it is an incredible place: one of the most emblematic places of fashion and Parisian couture, which hosts the workshops and fashion shows.
Azzedine Alaïa quickly surrounded himself with a multitude of personalities such as Greta Ga
