There are two things that distinguish human beings from all other animals: laughter and wearing clothes. And between these two habits, there’s a fundamental difference: the first is an innate reaction, the second fruit of invention, research and taste.
To pay honour to the art of dressing, in the magnificent Medieval Court of Palazzo Madama in Turin, National Geographic has organised Fashion, a thoughtfully-designed photographic tour centred around clothes, fabrics and identity. Because “the fashion shows in Milan and Paris have much more in common with the prairies of Oregon, the rainforests in Papua New Guinea, African villages and the temples in Java than you could ever imagine.”
62 images printed in large format and taken by the greatest masters of photography such as Alexander Graham Bell, William Albert Allard and Eliza Scidmore. An unmissable occasion to reflect upon the symbiotic relationship between people and clothes, an occasion to gaze upon the beauty and colours of the entire world.
