Germaine Emilie Krebs (1903 – 1993) began her career under the name “Alix Barton” and only became known as Madame Grès after 1942. She is best known for her perfection in the art of pleating and draping. A great sculptress of fashion, Madame Grès is represented here by this chic ensemble that was donated by Mrs. Walter Paepcke. A major exhibition, Madame Grès: The Sphinx of Fashion, will open at the Museum at FIT in February, 2008.

Ball gown, mid 1950s, labelled `Grès, 1 Rue de la Paix, Paris', the elaborately boned strapless bodice edged in garlands of silk blossom and roses, the dress formed from four layers of white and yellow chiffon, organza and taffeta and a final translucent overlay of glistening white horsehair which gives glimpses of the primrose yellow layers below and also ensures a perfect silhouette.
