There is a fabulous exhibition of the work of the sculptor turned legendary couturier, Madame Grès, in Paris.

My little visit today was a sheer delight. Millions of hand sewn gathers in flowing silk jersey..

..in creams, soft pastels..

.. sophisticated blacks..

..and striking bolds..

..followed by less pliable wools that are beautifully displayed between the sometimes giant and always surprisingly frozen in time sculptures of Bourdelle.

 

The exhibition is housed at Musée Bourdelle and runs until 24 July. Entrance €7. Closed on Mondays.
