The fashion week in Paris ends, the projectors of catwalks go out … However in the light and in our hearts  remains a fashion designer who revolutionized  the story of fashion : Yves Saint Laurent, the pioneer of the luxury ready-to-wear. The one  who has made available his creations to the women of his time,  the sewing leaving the high-society evening for the street.
Go to the foundation Pierre Bergé to relive the emancipation of the women, the time of the fashion flapper with the  feminine version of the tuxedo, the trench, the pea jacket … this pieces which are now must have of your wardrobe but all that revolutionized an era, releasing the Status of Women.
