About the Exhibition:

This exhibition casts a new light on the label’s 70-year history, featuring garments as well as never-before-exhibited sketches and documents from the Chloé Archive. It showcases Chloé founder Gaby Aghion as a leader whose work altered the course of the global fashion industry in liberating women's bodies from the restrictive attitudes and styles of the time, as well as pioneering the emergence of luxury ready-to-wear. It also features other designers who began their careers with the brand, including Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, and Phoebe Philo.
