Madam Grès

Every now and then I like to feature one of my favorite designers. Knowing my passion for Neoclassical Designer Mariano Fortuny, it's no surprise that I've always been captivated by the work of Madame Grès ,who was known as the "master of the wrapped and draped dress." Unlike Fortuny, who used a chemical process to create his pleats, Grès would direct the flow and folds with her own hands, then the unpressed pleats would be stitched into place, making the pleats to appear to woven into each other.

But I'll let her speak for her self.

Each image will lead you to more images and articles about her work.


See you next Fashion Friday.
