What was originally a generous gift by the Duchess Galliera and her heirs to the City of Paris has become a grand museum dedicated to fashion with an intense collection of over 100,000 French designs from the 18th century to the present day. Items include clothes owned by Marie-Antoinette, Louise XVII, and Empress Josephine as well as Audrey Hepburn’s dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
