October 27, 2009 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Monique Saviano made this ½ scale reproduction of a Madeleine Vionnet gown for the 16th Annual Educational Conference of the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals. This delicate confection is made with silk chiffon from Britex Fabrics. The fringe is made of rayon chainette. One may read more about Madeleine Vionnet , an innovative designer who worked intensively with the bias cut, in Betty Kirke’s book “Madeleine Vionnet”, or in one of many articles about her such as “A Dressmaker Extraordinaire: Discovering the Secrets of Madeleine Vionnet’s Creativity”, which was published in Threads magazine in 1989.
