While the classically inspired "Grecian" gown designed by Madame Alix Gres is widely recognized and admired, little else of the brilliant couturier's life or work has received close attention. This book, by far the most detailed study yet published on this influential fashion designer, carefully analyzes Madame Gres's innovative construction techniques and connects her designs to the art styles and movements that inspired and informed her aesthetic.
