What a lovely dress, and a fascinating history! Thanks for sharing it with us.


This was very interesting and informative. Thank you for sharing this.

Amazing! There's a whole crew of couturiers out there besides Worth, Doucet, and Pingat who were active during the same period but we know almost nothing about today. Unfortunately, there are few if any sources in English and perhaps more in French but to me it's still a completely obscure area that could use more exposure. Keep it up.

Very interesting. I am just working about this Maison Barroin and others couture in Paris, and I put your text in the bibliography (it is for Thames & Hudson.
