Madame Grès, vous m’inspire

August 19, 2011

When I viewed the life work of Madame Grès just two days ago, I could not speak. I could hardly think straight. I knew that I was looking at love and artistry and pure inspiration. Who needs words? Tellement, I was touched that I had to sit down and gather myself, especially when I viewed this dress. The crowd had dispersed and I was alone with the light and this gown, this work. I don’t see fashion, (je ne suis pas trés “fashion”). I see dedication and art, what that means to me, it’s everything. To create something so timeless, so beautiful, is a miracle. There are more works that I will display but this is by far the one that makes me think the most. It’s a beacon, it drew me near and made me see the point of it all.

She created because she understood.

    Beautiful clothes. Magnifique! That orange dress is so elegant. You were lucky to see this and photograph it.
