Personal Quote:

A dress is a piece of ephemeral architecture, designed to enhance the proportions of the female body.


Each of his collections was immortalized by the name of a silhouette: the Zigzag line for Spring-Summer 1948; the Ciseau (Scissor) line for Fall-Winter 1949; the Muguet (his favorite flower) line for Spring-Summer 1954. See more »
