V&A - The Victoria and Albert Museum

The Olivier Saillard Fashion in Motion live catwalk event took place on 20 January 2012.

Fashion in Motion is a series of live fashion events presented against the unique backdrop of the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers and influencers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings the excitement and spectacle of the high fashion catwalk to a wide audience.

Museum director, curator and performer Olivier Saillard, regularly stages unique fashion-based performances for an invited audience during Paris Couture week. For Fashion in Motion, he presented the V&A audiences with an exclusive boutique-style performance.

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.
