the man

Lelong_crepedress_1 >>  He mastered every aspect of haute couture.  He handpicked and fostered design assistants like Dior, Givenchy, and Balmain.  He pioneered the idea of luxury ready-to-wear clothing.  Vogue calls him the "forefather of today's fashion industry titans."  So why don't more of us know about him?

The man has left a legacy, not only in Parisian fashion, but in international fashion.  Finally, this legacy is being recognized, with an exhibition opening on February 28 at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York -- "Modern Master: Lucien Lelong, Couturier (1918 -- 1948)."  On display will be suits and dresses for daywear, a sequin-embroidered silk evening dress and capelet, and a peignoir fashioned of silk crepe chiffon, satin, and lace.  So if you're in NYC between the 28th and April 15, get your tush over to FIT -- it'll be worth your while.
