"A DRESS COMES UNDER SCULPTURE,
NOT DRAWING" GABRIELLE CHANEL

Gabrielle Chanel's fascination for Greek Antiquity had a profound influence on how she saw creation. In the center of her apartment stood a headless Venus dating from the first century BC. The timeless, strikingly modern figure implicitly reveals Gabrielle Chanel's technique, painstakingly chiselling, as it were, her garments with her fingers, her pins, the tools of her trade. She referred to the sculptor Praxiteles to explain her art and her vision of fashion, with cuts influenced by architecture, a repertoire of shapes, and fabric that draped naturally over the body.
