Madeleine Vionnet

The 30’s are considered to be a more austere period in fashion, certainly more than the 20’s that preceded it.  If you have ever studied patternmaking you would know this couldnt be further from the truth. The bias cut made famous at the time not only uses a lot more fabric and is technically challenging.

There is one designer who revolutionised the bias cut. Not just with styling but with the technique. Madeleine Vionnet is one of my favourite designers, the more i see of her work the more I love it.

The shapes she inspires are ideal for weddings, vintage and modern at the same time.
