theatre de la mode.

February 26, 2010

this is from the theatre de la mode. theatre de la mode means ‘theater of fashion’. these 1/3 scale mannequins went on a tour of the world starting in 1946. they were designed by fashion designers, sculptors and set designers in paris in an effort to maintain the city’s reign as fashion capitol post ww2. these mannequins are on permanent exhibit out in eastern washington at the maryhill museum in goldendale.

    I have seen this exhibit at the Maryhill museum & absolutly loved it! My daughter has a shoe store in Hood River – “Zella” – & she also has a shop with a friend in Portland – “Jet”. If you love shoes & haven’t been to either one, you should go!
