Fashion in Motion: Olivier Saillard

Fashion in Motion is a series of live fashion shows at the V&A featuring leading fashion designers from across the world. Museum director, curator and performer Olivier Saillard presented an exclusive boutique-style performance during Paris Couture Week.

Working with five famous French models, Axelle Doue, Claudia Huidobro, Anne Rohart, Violeta Sanchez and Amalia Vairelli, Saillard and his team investigated the gestures and poses of the fashion model as they have evolved and changed throughout the history of fashion. The show illustrated the importance and impact of attitude and movement in the presentation of fashion and how we associate certain poses with certain eras and styles of dress.
