DIX

Dix is an exhibition gathering Jean-Pierre Blanc’s ten favorites silhouettes from the spring-summer 2017 collections released by ten different fashion designers or brands. It took place at the occasion of the Hyères Fashion Festival of the Villa Noailles 2017.

The exhibition design of Dix taking place in what used to be Marie-Laure de Noailles’ painting atelier is inspired by both the costume parties organised by Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles as well as by their collection of african masks.
Dix luminous set also aims at celebrating the arrival of both the spring-summer collection and season. Dix is a party where five mannequins seem to be dancing on turntables when five others are part of the audience joined by visitors of the exhibition.
