An exhibition of photos by iconic photographer Pierre Boulat tracing French designer Yves Saint Laurent's career is coming to Kuala Lumpur. Held in conjunction with the Le French Festival, the exhibit is from 1 to 25 June, open every day except Mondays, at Galeri Petronas. Admission is free. 

In 1961, Pierre spent five weeks with the couturier as he prepared to stage his first fashion show. He became close friends with Saint Laurent, a relationship that gave him an intimate look at the work that went on backstage and of the designer's Paris home.

The exhibition will feature 49 vintage black and white photographs, some never displayed before, that give us a profound inside look at the work, passion and creativity of the legendary designer. Exhibits like this don't come to Malaysia that often, so make a beeline for Galeri Petronas in June.
