Entry Description

This past summer, I attended the Paris American Academy in Paris, specializing in couture techniques. While at the Academy, I created my own gown inspired by Madame Gres, and was taught by Madame Picco who worked for Madame Gres for many years. The gown took over 100 man-hours to construct pleating, belt and train as the majority of the dress was sewn by hand. The fascinator and hat were also constructed by me during this time in Paris.
