Inspirational Images: Bernard Turin, Paris 1970Posted: April 28, 2012
Another brilliant photograph from my strange, small archive of press photos. The description is in French, but I believe that artist Bernard Turin was so inspired by the winner of a beauty contest (Mademoiselle Prêt à Porter), Sin Wood, that he decided to create an ‘audacious and ingenious’ dress for her to wear. With a transparent circle showing her navel, a long fringed skirt and a transparent back.
She is shown modelling it on L’esplanade du Trocadero à Paris, 9th October 1970.
