In the 1950s, Parisian couturiers arrived in New York with their collections in suitcases, models in tow. In 2014, French fashion curator and director of the Palais Galliera Olivier Saillard will land with only his muses and their memories.

Seven former supermodels—Anne Rohart, Charlotte Flossaut, Axelle Doué, Christine Bergstrom, Claudia Huidobro, Amalia Vairelli, and Violeta Sanchez—break their traditional silence in a world-premiere performance that reveals the person behind the image and the soul beneath the style.
