Description

The inspiration of this dress came from Grecian arts and works of Madame Grès, one of the most brilliant couturiers of twentieth century. Madame Grès is famous for her Greek-inspired silk jersey dresses, which drape around female body, enhancing movement (The Museum at FIT, n.d.). Influenced by the inspiration, I wanted to create a dress that wraps around and flows over a female body naturally with minimal structure. As a women walks in this dress the folds and pleats move freely and gracefully with her body movement. The woman who would love to wear this dress has tastes for fine classical style items, loves arts and likes to show the natural silhouette of her body. This dress can be worn for attending special events such as an evening at the opera, award ceremonies, and art gallery openings.
