Tilda Swinton / Olivier Saillard The Impossible Wardrobe

[Visual Arts & Performance]

In a fashion museum like Galliera, thousands of clothes from various historical times are carefully stored – often never to be worn again.
Tilda Swinton learned the minute gestures of the fashion archivist and invented others, chaste or romantic. In a mysterious fashion show, she showcases precious dresses in a restrained ritual, reviving the hidden histories weaved into the fabrics.
