Designer Madeleine Vionnet French
Not on view
Madeleine Vionnet was a consummate technician, particularly known for her innovative use of the bias cut and the mathematically precise construction of her garments. Minimalist by philosophy, Vionnet's construction details were often executed so as to create decorative effects, obviating the need for any trimming. This evening dress bears the hallmarks of Vionnet's design aesthetic with the use of faggoting in both construction and as decoration.
