A book on the history of modern fashion by Olivier Saillard, who ran the exhibition program at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, FASHION AND TEXTILES department (and who is now director of the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris) formed the basis of a two-part year-long program. Exhibits featured new ideas and forms from each age, showing works from some of the most important designers in modern fashion history. The exhibition offered more than just a look at clothes; the scene was set for each exhibit with video footage of the collections from which they were taken. As one of the giants of modern fashion, Miyake’s works were requested for inclusion in the exhibition, and pieces from the 1970s and 1980s were loaned for display in four different themes relating to material and form.
