Every time I come to Paris I hope that there will be an exhibit at the Galleria Museum. This time I was lucky enough to see the Azzedine Alaia Couturier Exhibit which opened on September 28th, 2013 and will be running until January 26th 2014.
The show was split into 2 Parts. The Modern Art Museum of the city of Paris (MAM) had 7 outfits and the rest were in the Galleria Museum.
Azzedine Alaia was born in Tunisa. He started his couturier house in the 1950s. At that time, he supplemented his income with work at a little sewing shop in Paris.
When his clients realized that they had found someone special, they spread the news of his talents to their circle of friends. At this point, his career jumped into gear and he began to do amazing things for his clients. You have seen his clothing on a number of movie stars but ordinary people wear his dresses too.
