The Impossible Wardrobe

A runway through past, present and future in fashion with Tilda Swinton and Olivier Saillard

“Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?” – “Tilda is the fairest of them all”, would answer the jolly bunch of fashion professionals and A-list celebrities, who saw Swinton walking up and down the catwalk, pausing in front of a mirror at one end and showcasing most precious and intriguing collector fashion and historical costumes.

The invited guests who attended the general rehearsal of Olivier Saillard’s “The Impossible Wardrobe” in Paris on September 29, as well as the lucky few with tickets for the performances from September 29 to October 1, 2012 could consider themselves blessed, for the event was sold out within minutes. And rightly so, because they would otherwise have missed out on a unique performance: The settings were more than just serene, they were clinical and cold – like a morgue, one would say – representing the very exclusive archives of the Musée Galliera’s fashion museum, with never-seen-before pieces of fashion history.
