About

Madame Grés was not well known by the general public. However the French designer’s long career spanned from the early 1920s to the 1980s. Grés’ contribution to the history of fashion is indisputable, and her lasting influence continues to be seen on the catwalk. Known primarily for her gowns with tiny cartridge pleating. Her technique always followed the strict tradition of haute couture. Madame Grés’ approach to fabric was with the unrelenting discipline of a sculptor. She would drape yards of fabric around mannequins until she perfected the art of drapery. This sophisticated pant outfit demonstrates the incredible virtuosity of the designer. Yards of luxurious silk taffeta material was used to create this voluminous draped evening outfit. Featuring a wraparound look bodice, plunging v-neckline and full gathered djellaba style trousers. The outfit is adorned with short draped sleeves together with a long slit at the back from the neckline down to the waist.
