From 3 November 2016 to 12 February 2017, the “Anatomy of a collection” exhibition will be extended and will become “Anatomy of a collection – Part II” with a new display.

 From among all the corsets in the Museum’s storerooms, Anatomy of a Collection is presenting Marie-Antoinette’s; and from among all the blouses, one that belonged to a First World War nurse whose name has not come down to us… The Dauphin’s suit, Napoleon’s waistcoat, Empress Josephine’s dress, Castiglione’s blouse, Cléo de Mérode’s riding jacket, a worker’s trousers, George Sand’s dress, Sarah Bernhardt’s cape, a Zouave’s uniform, Mistinguett’s T-bar shoes, Gala Dali’s shoe-hat, a workman’s apron, Audrey Hepburn’s outfit, Elsa Schiaparelli’s overcoat, the Duchess of Windsor’s dress, a dress worn by Jacqueline Bouvier (Jackie Kennedy), and more… Two hundred items with or without pedigree, but identified with the people who wore them.
