Costume pays court to the Palace of Versailles for an exhibition entitled Court Pomp and Royal Ceremony, to be held from March 31 to June 28, 2009. This exhibition is dedicated to court dress and to the influence of French fashion in European courts, featuring some 200 exhibits.
   Most of the exhibits come from the collections of the major European museums: the Victoria & Albert in London, the Hermitage in St Petersburg, the Royal Armoury in Stockholm, the Green Vault in Dresden and Rosenborg Castle in Denmark, which are lending some of their exhibits for the first time. A collection of jewels, accessories and original paintings will accompany the procession of magnificent costumes.
   Fashion house Chanel is sponsoring the exhibition.
