Make note in your diary, here are some of the fashion exhibitions you won’t want to miss this autumn.
The Fifties: Fashion in France, 1947 – 1957
It’s the decade when Dior coined the term, “New Look” and the Chanel suit first made an appearance. The Musée de la Mode in Paris is looking back to the fifties, tracing the progression of French fashion throughout this influential decade. Expect to see designs by Dior and Balenciaga but also pieces by forgotten names such as Lola Prusac, allowing you to discover the wardrobe of an era.

Horst: Photographer of Style
The Victoria & Albert Museum is hosting a retrospective of fashion photographer Horst P. Horst. From his images captured for Vogue, to his portraits of Hollywood movie stars, the exhibition spans the different angles of his work.

Second Floor - The Private Apartment of Chanel
Following the success of the Little Black Jacket exhibition, the Saatchi gallery and Chanel return with another collaboration. This time we’ll be able to step into the world of Coco Chanel herself, with a series of images shot by photographer Sam Taylor-Johnson. 45 photographs will reveal Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment at 31 Rue Cambon.

Killer Heels
Love shoes? Then you’ll need to head to Brooklyn this autumn, as the Brooklyn Museum will be running an exhibition dedicated entirely to high heels. The exhibit will take you on a walk through the history of the high heel, from 16th century chopines to styles by contemporary designers such as Christian Louboutin. The exhibition will also feature short films by the likes of Steven Klein and Zach Gold, all of which are inspired by the heel.
