As a result of the international amateur photo contest “Fashion and Dress Codes”, the Fondation Alliance Française invites us to discover the best pictures which were selected from entries sent by 115 photographers from all around the world.

The Alliance Française Bruxelles-Europe gallery is pleased to exhibit this photo journey, characterized by its diversity given the multiple possible interpretations of the theme. The exhibition makes us discover photographs inspired by the archetypes of fashion photography or works picturing the fashion codes proper to different cultures; from the traditional clothes worn during the Volambetoaka in Madagascar to the costume of the Mexican mariachi.

The contest aims to highlight the diversity of the Alliance Française’s network and to give a chance to amateur photographers to see their work exhibited all around the world.
