Promincor – Lingerie Française, the association for the promotion of corsetry industries, is bringing the world-touring Lingerie Française Exhibition, a retrospective covering over 150 years of French lingerie to Art Basel Miami Beach 2016.

The Lingerie Francaise Exhibition will feature 100 pieces of influential and iconic lingerie from France’s most prominent brands, each item illustrating significant developments in fashion, technological innovation, legendary craftsmanship, the morphing silhouette and the ever-evolving ideals of feminine propriety.

The exhibition explores the relationship between women, fashion, and lingerie, charting the evolution of societal values through the changing form of French lingerie from the 1880’s through the present, and showcases how undergarments have transformed the female form through time.
