Madame Grès at the Musée Bourdelle - "For a dress to survive from one era to the next, it must be marked with an extreme purity." ~ Madame Grès "Her favorite fabric was silk jersey, and a single dress could take from 13 to 21 meters. Her talent for pleating could reduce 9 feet of fabric into a mere 2.8 inches." http://www.thefashionhistorian.com/2011/08/madame-gres.html
