Christian Lacroix, despite leaving LVMH a few years ago is still on the cutting-edge side of Fashion as he has curated a big exhibition at the "Musée de la Mode et du Textile", from 8 November 2007 - 20 April 2008, in Paris and as he opened a second American shop in NYC.
For over a year, Lacroix, the fashion designer from cultural city Arles, immersed himself in the parisian museum’s collections of costumes and accessories. The result is an exhibition in which Christian Lacroix gives us his own personal vision of the history of fashion. Among the many dresses, the one Madonna had chosen for the X-Static project held by Steven Klein (see picture). This exhibition was also meant to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his couture house.

Located in the heart of Manhattan, between the 36th and 57th Avenues, a shop of 168 m2 hosts woman, man and accessories' collections . "I never forgot how the United States and New York helped and supported me at the beginning of my career. Hence it is legitimate to go back to my roots.
