Victoria and Albert Museum – Travelling Exhibition at the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec, Québec, QC, CAN

Featuring the creations of the greatest French and English fashion designers including Balenciaga, Dior, Balmain, Givenchy and Company, this 2010 exhibition was devoted to haute couture and showcased more than 200 original creations from the years 1947 to 1957.

One of a kind, the exhibition Haute Couture. Paris, London, 1947-1957. The Golden Age was a tribute to the creators of this era, marked by the return of splendor and glamour after World War II.

It consisted mainly of pieces from the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

Challenge

The collection was to be presented at the MNBAQ during a brief period of two months, as part of a travelling exhibition to travel through a multitude of destinations. The museum needed high quality, collapsible and movable cases.

Our display cases meet the highest conservation standards from the V&A.

Our Solutions

To this end, assemblies of modular display cases have been custom designed to enhance this elegant collection.

These climate-controlled cases could be assembled in various configurations to accommodate a variety of objects and floorplans.

They could also be dismantled and stored by the museum staff to save on cost.
