"For a dress to survive from one era to the next, it must be extremely pure. This is the great secret of a creation's survival." Madame Grès

Germaine Krebs (1903-1993), known as Alix and later Madame Grès, began working in Paris's Faubourg Saint Honoré in 1934. From 1942 to 1988, she moved to 1, rue de la Paix under the name Grès. Her style was famous for its draping and pure lines. She created her first draped dresses from 1934, using the properties of an artificial silk jersey. Her compositions gave the models the appearance of Greek vestals. Asymmetrical dresses, draped in the antique style as if moulded onto the body, dresses of volume and fluidity, where the faille, the taffeta, the silk, the silk, the silk, the silk, the silk, the silk, the silk, the silk, the silk, the silk.
