In 1966, the Spanish designer Francisco Rabaneda y Cuervo, known as Paco Rabanne, founded his own eponymous fashion house and presented his first collection, a true manifesto for the time, called ” Twelve unwearable dresses in contemporary materials”.

Sewed with sequins or aluminium sheets, the creations were surprising because it was totally disruptive with the clothing aesthetics of the time. His creations became works of art, moving closer to the plastic arts and architecture, fields in which Paco Rabanne trained himself before.

A revolution in the world of fashion. Subversive and audacious, the creator makes metal his signature and dresses women in protective and threatening armors. Françoise Hardy is the figurehead, wearing her mini chainmail dresses on television and on shootings. Today, the Musée Le Secq des Tournelles in Rouen celebrates the innovative work of the fashion metallurgist in an exhibition featuring a series of metal creations that interact wonderfully with the collections of the Musée de la ferronnerie. Accompanied by rare archives, videos and magazines from the time, this exhibition is really worth a look.
