I love her clothes, especially those from the 1930s! They are superb.

Great designer, great work ... Beautiful dresses, apparently simple (but in fact, complex), elegant, great art of "coupe" (what's the word in english ? "cutting", "cut" ... ?) -, absolutly well shaped ...

She totally deserves to be more famous.

To me, the piece what sums up her style is this evening dress from 1935 :


Btw, if you're going to Paris, come to Les Arts décoratifs museum to admire the exposition on Vionnet's creations. It's great !

My favorite design of hers. I find it amazing how this dress is still relevant (and will probably always be), you could wear it to a red carpet event today and be the most elegant. It embodies the very essence of fashion.
