Inspirational Images: Bernard Turin, Paris 1970

1970s, Bernard Turin, Inspirational Images, Press Photos

Photograph by Robert Cohen for AGIP

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.
