The energy and feeling emanated inside the walls of Carreau du Temple, the venue of the Alber Elbaz tribute show in October, is one that left guests in a state of awe and teary-eyed. Closing out Paris Fashion Week, 45 participating designers came together to bring the late designer’s dream to reality, uniting the fashion industry in a modern-day Theatre de la Mode. GRAZIA gave you an exclusive look inside the captivating Love Brings Love show, but now the legendary couturier’s independent label, AZ Factory, is bringing the homage creations back, and it’ll be open to the public for all to see.
In a one of a kind immersive experience, fashion lovers will get the opportunity to experience the uplifting and powerful energy of the Love Brings Love show in person. Although we cannot confirm if big fashion names, including Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli, Naomi Campbell, Maria Grazia Chiuri, and Jean Paul Gaultier, who were in attendance, will be present, we can guarantee a front-row view of the extensive lineup.
The exhibition will replicate the runway experience, including the dazzling designer looks from Dior to McQueen on a runway. The effects, music, and lights will all be reproduced to truly recreate the moment that captivated the entire fashion industry–present or not. “The Palais Galliera celebrates Alber Elbaz, one of its most dear collaborators,” the cultural institution’s director Miren Arzalluz said in a statement shared with GRAZIA. “By re-enacting this moving and unprecedented tribute by the fashion industry, we wish to honor his life and legacy and invite our visitors to engage in the designer’s joyful vision of fashion.”
Attendance may not need a glossy invite, but tickets to The Palais Galliera fashion museum are required. The exhibition will be open to the public from March 5 to July 10. Until then rewatch our exclusive coverage inside the show below.
