Alice Alleaume, exhibition: The Novel of a Wardrobe
Alice Alleaume, exposition : Le roman d'une garde-robe
From Wednesday, October 16 2013 to Sunday, March 16 2014
A lady of fashion.
This is a unique wardrobe, that of a fashionable Parisian, the first saleswoman at Chéruit from 1912 to 1923, which has recently entered Galliera, the Ville de Paris fashion museum, by donation. From the early century to the '30s, Alice Alleaume wore designer dresses from Chéruit, Worth and Lanvin, evening shoes from Hellstern, hats from Alphonsine, Marcelle Demay, Madeleine Panizon or Le Monnier, evening headbands from Rose Descat… and showed the sureness of her taste tinged with originality in non-designer pieces, which are all fashion items.
This particularly well documented ensemble opens the doors of the haute couture and fashion milieu to which the family was closely linked from the Second Empire onwards. It covers Alice Alleaume's career and her apprenticeship at the beginning of the century to the Chéruit years, gradually unfolding to illustrate the evolution of fashion.
