Fortuny eschewed the whims of Paris fashion, preferring to perfect his own ideals. A devoted client would take great care and have a possessive, sentimental attachment to her Fortuny wardrobe. If a dress needed to be repleated, it could be sent back to Venice, where Fortuny would carefully restore it.
