My fashion art:

When we showed the sketches of the dresses to the owner of a silk factory in Lyons, that elderly gentleman smiled slyly and mysteriously: “I seem to have something special for you!” He produced samples from his new silk collection. Those were the most delicate chiffons painted by hand, skillfully connecting up to eight colors so light that when they were thrown in the air, and they hover for an instant and then slowly soar down. Those fabrics seemed to have been made right for my sketches. The most surprising was the fact that the owner of the factory agreed to sell us the fabrics even though he had prepared them for an exhibition in Paris. He seemed to be rejoicing together with us that he had created the fabrics according to God’s order.
This dress made of Lyons chiffon with the most complex manual drapery and a big round train, decorated with light- blue roses, represents a marvelous nature of the Garden of Eden yet undefiled by human sin.
