THE DESIGNERS AND THEIR CREATIONS
“Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco had the most quiet, bewitching style. She was able to take a couturier’s vision and re-interpret it as her own. She did this with the power of two elements rare in this world today: poise and grace. We need to learn from this.”
Dramatic and tiered in silk taffeta, the “Red Taffeta Goya Gown.” This design takes shape from a French original by Madame Grès worn in one of the most regal of all her official portraits – this one done in 1977 by Ricardo Macaron.
A striking rich red gown in 100 per cent paper silk taffeta featuring tiers with “pulled” fringe. Off-the-shoulder but with straps and voluminous sleeves; oversized keyhole décolletage: front of skirt has a slit to mid-thigh (at left) and back has an elongated train.
