The Musee National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec's is all dolled up for its first exhibition of the year. "Fashion and Appearance in Quebec Art, 1880 to 1945" takes a look at what Quebecers' fashion statements over the decades have said about who we are.

The exhibition also paired eight of Quebec's most reknown designers with works of art. Based on those paintings, they created a one of a kind garment to display alongside the works that inspired them.

Quebec AM's Julia Caron got to take a sneak peek.
