"Images et mode au Petit Palais”
360bespoke, working with ADB (Angela de Bona agency), one of fashion and media’s most respected talent representatives, have created a strategic alliance to bring Patrick Demarchelier’s "Images et mode au Petit Palais” exhibition to New York for a 2019/2020 presentation.
“I am very excited to bring this exhibition to New York. It is one of the proudest moments in my career and I’ve long wanted to present it in one of fashion’s important cities,” said Demarchelier. “Angela De Bona, my long time representative, and the team at 360bespoke are the right partners to bring this collection to the US. Every day is a new challenge and as a photographer you must constantly renew yourself.”
The collection was previously shown in the Le Petit Palais, Museee des Beaux Arts de la Ville de Paris in 2007 and became its most successful photo exhibitions of all time. For three months more than 360,000 people came to see the prized collection of the photographer’s work.
“Patrick Demarchelier’s sensitivity, deep sense of humanity, respect for his subjects, and ability to unearth passion in each individual advances the museum’s aesthetic commitment,” said Gilles Chazal, Curator-in-chief Director of Le Petit Palais. "Regardless of whether the subject is famous or unknown, they vibrate to the frequency of the photographer’s generous gaze. And the visitor is carried away by the life force bursting from the model’s eyes."
Demarchelier is one of the world’s most accomplished photographers, having shot the biggest names in fashion, celebrity and the arts. The exhibition will include 400 pieces of his extensive collection, including Princess Diana, Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise and the world’s most famous actors, models and personalities. He is the very first non-British citizen to shoot the Royal Family, and became Diana’s personal favorite. In 2007, Christine Albanel, the French Minister of Culture honored Demarchelier as an Officer in l’ordre des Arts at des Lettres. Today, he shoots covers, fashion features and profiles for Conde Nast, including all international editions of Vogue and Vanity Fair. He also regularly photographs commercial campaigns for Chanel, Louis Vuitton, YSL and a wide array of other global fashion brands.
