MÉTIERS D'ART 2018/19
This look sculpts the figure like the robe of an ancient Egyptian goddess, showcasing the fine craftsmanship of the embroidery house Montex. A shimmering embroidered dress is worn over a long tube dress in white jersey to bring out its transparency. Chains of gold beads were delicately sewn onto tulle to form a mesh, using a Cornély, a hand-operated machine designed in the 19th century. Needle-embroidered braids and interlaced triangles of glass cubes and metal tubes form geometric reliefs on the yoke collar, waist and at the bottom of the dress, putting the finishing touches to this look.
