Provenance. The gown once belonged to a celebrated beauty and headline socialite. Through her, I feel a direct connection with the spirit of Mariano Fortuny (1871-1949), because the celebrity was personally acquainted with the great designer. Her name will be provided to the buyer.

The condition is very good. This gown has been repaired under the arms and has slight variation in color and has a spot at the hem. These minor defects, which get lost in the pleats, are reflected in the price.

The length is 57" from the shoulder to the hem. The Delphos is shown on a mannequin with a 35" bust and 36" hip. The pleats expand to fit a variety of sizes.

The pictures are beautiful, but I cannot help but see the similarities to Grés! She even used many pleats in her own work.

It's more Issey Miyake than Grès to me. Grès's technique was completely different. The pleats were done directly on the mannequin, and then they were sewn. A few of Fortuny's pleats looked like they have been in some sort of chemical processes because of their irregularity... which is why it made me think more of Issey's work.

^La Bourdelique, you're right. I'm not very familiar with Miyake myself, but I just looked at the few pictures we have on TFS of his pieces , and there is a very close resemblance!
