English term or phrase: The Emperor's New Clothes
I need the authorized version of this fairy tale, if there is any in French, or an equivalent story involving garments, or rather absence of garments.
I am translating an article about a fashion designer making virtual clothes so I need to keep the analogy.

Thanks ever so much for that, Beate.
It's very useful to know it but I do not think i will keep it as a reference in my text because it hasn't got the same familiar connotation in French as in english.
