“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening” Coco Chanel. Following this perception, Catherine Örmen, a well-known figure in the fashion field, recognized for her work and study about fashion through history, had perfectly spread the word on what fashion really is. Students from Fashion and Textile Master Degree in Aix Marseille University had the unique privilege to attend her class. During several days she gave more than a theoretical comprehension of fashion through centuries. She literally shared her unique and endless knowledge on fashion through figures, political and economic events. She raised students awareness on the real fashion problematics had to deal with and the ones which might come. Thankfully we all have access to her impressive and published studies and researches, and her brand new book « All about Yves » is a must read. Dealing with Yves Saint Laurent’s life she brings more than facts, she reveals rare and exclusive archives.
