Fashion

At a fashion exhibition of  French couturier "Hubert de Givenchey" (1927)  in the Gemeente Museum in The Hague.

I loved to see the details of the embroidery so close!



He had many famous clients as actress Audrey Hepburn who was his muze. The pink minidress with cap is her weddingdress with Andrea Dotti in 1969.

Princess Gracia of Monaco.

The Duchess of Windsor. the former Wallis Simpson.

When the Duke of Windsor had died, this mourning costume was made in one night for his wife to wear at the funeral.

And at the end of the exhibition I couldn't resist to try an Audrey Hepburn hat.
