Imagine stepping into one of Paris's top Haute Couture houses in the early 20th century: Alice Alleaume, chief saleswoman from 1912 to 1923 at Chéruit, 21 Place Vendôme, welcomes you and offers to fulfil your wildest dreams. From 17 October 2013 to 16 March 2014 the Musée Carnavalet is home to an off-site exhibition by the Palais Galliera, the City of Paris Fashion Museum: The Novel of a Wardrobe: Parisian Chic from the Belle Epoque to the 1930s.

On public display here for the first time, this remarkable wardrobe is that of Alice Alleaume herself. Dresses by Chéruit, Worth and Lanvin, evening shoes by Hellstern, hats by Alphonsine, Marcelle Demay, Madeleine Panizon and Le Monnier, evening headbands by Rose Descat, jewellery – and much more.
