French title: “Empire de la Mode”

This exceptional exhibition aims to show the evolution and richness of fashion between the Directory and the First Empire, through the presentation of more than 60 original accessorised costumes. To accompany these costumes, presented on mannequins with the morphological characteristics of Napoleon I’s contemporaries, a selection of engravings from the period are presented.

The exhibition provides an insight into the social transformations generated by the industrial and commercial development that followed the new political order established after the French Revolution, and which are still visible today.
