Her jersey draperies belong to the legends of haute couture. This amazing figure, who looked like a nun, was a viruoso who knew just how to pay tribute to the movement and freedom of the body. Within the boundaries of exoticism and adventure, she illuminated Paris with her genius before vanishing into oblivion. Beyond all her fashions, Madame Gres remains a myth.
