For the first time, more than 200 pieces from the courts of Europe are brought together as they could only be at Versailles. The pieces are from private collections, the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), the Palais Pitti (Florence), the Frech National Archives, the Louvre, and the City of Paris Fashion Museum. The exposition follows the language of court etiquette through costume and ceremony. Collections from London, Denmark, Sweden, Portugal, Vienna, Moscow, and Cologne are presented for the first time outside of their countries of origin.
