The Fashion Icon exhibition reveals a history of fashion in a very unexpected way at the Textile Museum in Lyon, France. The muse is none other than the Virgin Mary! It reveals how for centuries, the Catholic church has expressed their devotion to the Virgin by covering Her statues with majestic costumes. Recently, big names in Haute Couture have designed new clothes for a statue of the Black Virgin of Toulouse.
