ABOUT THE BRAND

Defined as the “architect among dressmakers Madeleine Vionnet founded her maison in Paris, in 1912, impressing the world of couture with her totally innovative approach, her sartorial skills and the perfect balance between experimentation and elegance. The inventor of the bias cut and the celebrated queen of draping, Madeleine Vionnet was a star player in that revolution which modernized women’s clothing. Gathering inspiration from Greek art, she created garments that clung to the shape of the body, with a fluidity that echoed its movements, in the conviction that dresses must take on the personality of the person wearing them.
