Style Icons: Female »Madeleine Vionnet

Queen of the Bias Cut

Madame Vionnet was the queen of the bias cut (which you can learn a technical description of here) but just know that it basically means that she single-handedly made fashion more flattering. In any apparel retrospective there’s sure to be at least one stunning Vionnet gown.

It will be the one that is so timelessly elegant that you could walk right out of the museum flaunting it to a fancy dinner and look totally chic, gorgeous, and current. With draping and exact technical mastery of fabrics, Vionnet made women look like goddesses.

The house has been reborn in recently with Rodolfo Paglialunga at the designer helm.
