"L'Orient des femmes vu par Christian Lacroix" poster until May 15, 2011

MQB. Affiche de l’exposition dossier : “L’Orient des femmes vu par Christian Lacroix”. Du 8 février au 15 mai 2011.

Directeur artistique : Christian Lacroix ; Commissaire : Hana Chidiac
Exposition réalisée avec le soutien du Club Entreprises 2010-2011 et de la Fondation Bettencourt Schueller.
Cette exposition présente une sélection de robes de fête, manteaux, voiles et coiffes qui composaient le trousseau de mariée des villageoises et bédouines de Syrie, de Jordanie, de Palestine et du désert du Sinaï.
Datant pour la plupart de la fin du 19e siècle à nos jours, ces pièces ornées de broderies et d’applications de couleurs témoignent d’une continuité des traditions et des savoir-faire dans un contexte social et politique qui a considérablement évolué au cours de cette période. Hommage aux femmes orientales, l’exposition entraîne le visiteur dans une déambulation poétique imaginée par Christian Lacroix, évoquant les atmosphères des lieux où vivaient les femmes.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
