Capturing the Catwalk is the first exhibition to explore the pioneering photography of Michel Arnaud, whose work for Harper’s Bazaar and British Vogue spans the 1970s–1990s. Featuring garments and accessories from brands such as Christian Dior, Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Gianni Versace alongside selections from the unparalleled photographic archive donated by Arnaud, Capturing the Catwalk highlights the synergy of fashion journalists and trendsetters, couture and ready-to-wear clientele, and runway spectacle in the age of supermodels.

- FIDM Museum Purchase: Funds raised by the FIDM Museum Fashion Council [2011-2015]
Established in 2011, the FIDM Museum Fashion Council has underwritten–or as they say, "Adopted"–both individually and as a collective many rare and beautiful objects for our Permanent Collection. This Gallery of Wonders dresses and accessorizes the human form throughout history in great luxury and panache; all of the items were chosen exclusively because they represent the very best of their kind.
Thank you FIDM Museum Fashion Council for the enthusiasm and depth of outreach you bring to every stylish fund-raising event. This exhibition celebrates your dedication, and welcomes those who would like to join the fun!
