French luxury brand Hermes recently held an exhibition and dance event called The View from Her in Beijing to showcase its autumn/winter 2016 ready-to-wear collection, bags, jewelry and accessories.
The Minsheng Contemporary Art Museum, in Beijing's 798 Art Zone, where the event was held, was split into several spaces to display the items.
In the first room, 10 scarves presented in a blur of neon, pulsating light and looped video. In another room, there were bags, watches and jewelry.
Yet another room had nine ready-to-wear gowns laid flat like sleeping beauties on under-lit white drawers.
After walking through these spaces, guests entered a small "theater" to watch a 20-minute dance called Ensemble for Nine Dresses created by renowned American dancer/choreographer Lucinda Childs.
