I’ve been meaning to post these for a while. I was lucky enough to go to the lovely (and free!) Paris Haute Couture exhibit at the Mairie de Paris (Town Hall of Paris) in early May. It’s on until 6 July and well worth a visit. Not only gorgeous dresses from about 1900 to today, but also wonderful “behind the scenes” glimpses of patterns, croquis, embellishments, fittings and all the practically unknown roles that play a part in making the final garment.
And I came out knowing much more about Lanvin and Vionnet, and with serious sewing crushes on both. Swoooooon.
