I wanted to share with you this amazing experience that I had during my exchange in Paris, I visited the "Musée de Yves Saint Laurent" in the Avenu Marceau in the 16 arrondissement, this is one of my favorite places in Paris, little quite in contrast to the heart of Paris, but you can also walk around and find a lot of bistrots and fashion houses, for sure.
First I want to let you know that before to be the Museum, it was the Yves saint laurent's house and studio where he worked and lived until 2008.
He was born in Algeria and lived in Paris to work for designer Christian Dior and gained acclaim for his dress designs. In 1966, he launched his own fashion labels, where his adaptations of tuxedos for women garnered him fame. He was the first living designer to receive a solo exhibition in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1983. The Designer died in Paris on June 1, 2008 from brain cancer.
Pierre Bergé, his love and co-founder of YSL label decided to open the doors to the studio to the world to have access and discover the history of the haute couture houses. You shouldn't miss this experience.
Don't miss to write me if you want more info ;-)
