Impressionism and fashion is the name of the major exhibition being staged until 20th January at the Musée d’Orsay. This cultural event enables visitors to discover how, through their endeavour to depict as faithfully as possible the way of life of their era, the impressionists provided a testament to 19th century trends and fashion.
