Madame Grès opened the fashion house Alix in 1934, but was forces to close it in 1939. In 1942 she opened a new house under her husband's "nom d'artiste", Grès. In the mid-1930s she became known for extravagantly arranged clothes made of silk jersey in the classical Greek style and with few visible seams. The dress illustrated here was designed in 1944 for actress Danièle Delorme for her appearances in Jean Anouih's play "Antigone".

My rendition of Madame Gres' signature look
Had a hard time sewing it because of the fabric, so it was not that perfect but nevertheless, I'm still happy with the outcome. It may not be as perfect as Madame Gres' but still, I made it with all my heart! haha :) stay tuned for the next project!
