This past Paris Fashion Week closed with a beautiful tribute to Alber Elbaz, which saw 45 designers pay homage to his work, after the iconic creative passed away earlier this year. And now, the designer's life and work will be celebrated even further, as the 'Love Brings Love' tribute is turned into an exhibition for all to see.

The Palais Galliera fashion museum in Paris will play host to the exhibition, which will be open to the public from 5 March to 10 July.

The museum will recreate the catwalk experience, and will feature every single look that was created in tribute to Elbaz, including those from Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton, Balenciaga's Demna Gvasalia and Dior's Maria Grazia Chiuri.

"The Palais Galliera celebrates Alber Elbaz, one of its most dear collaborators," the cultural institution’s director Miren Arzalluz said in a statement. "By re-enacting this moving and unprecedented tribute by the fashion industry, we wish to honour his life and legacy and invite our visitors to engage in the designer’s joyful vision of fashion."

The exhibition will be an immersive experience for the public, who will not only see every single design lit up just as it was on the runway, but will also view footage streamed from the show.

Elbaz passed away unexpectedly in April of this year, after a short battle with Covid-19. The designer was one of the most beloved names in the fashion industry and was perhaps best-known for his revival of Lanvin while serving as creative director of the French fashion house from 2001 until 2015. He also had stints at other fashion houses, including Guy Laroche and Yves Saint Laurent, and in 2019, launched his own label, AZ Factory, a partnership with luxury conglomerate Richemont.
