Hans Boodt Mannequins is official partner of the BACKSIDE 'Fashion from behind' exposition in the Fashion and Lace Museum in Brussels.
What does fashion and its creators such as Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Schiaparelli, Alaïa, Martin Margiela and Olivier Theyskens have to say about this part of our body? How, from the 18th century costume to the present day, has the back been treated or abused, sublimated or forgotten, hindered or protected? This exhibition reveals it all.
Curated by Alexandre Samson (Palais Galliera Paris) and Caroline Esgain (Fashion and Lace Museum Brussels) and supported by Hans Boodt Mannequins.
