Madeleine Vionnet by Pamela Golbin and Patrick Gries

Fab Read: Madeleine Vionnet

"When a woman smiles, then her dress should smile too," said Madeleine Vionnet. I admit, I didn't know much about Vionnet until I read Madeleine Vionnet, by Pamela Golbin and Patrick Gries. If it weren't for Madeleine, dubbed the queen of the bias cut, gowns and skirts wouldn't be half as fluid and sexy as they are today. Not only did the late and great Madeleine create the bias, she also spearheaded the invention of the handkerchief dress, cowl neck, and halter top — wow. This book also features an illustrated chronology of her life and never-seen-before photos. It was kind of like stepping into a romantic history lesson on the creative mind of Vionnet. Cool.
