There is a museum in Paris, the Palais Galliera, which is a fashion museum showing mostly historical types of fashion. The last time I was here I saw clothing by Lanvin. This time it was about the clothing of la Comtesse Greffulhe, who was a well known Parisian at the end of the 1800’s, known for her fashion sense and her support of artists and musicians. Her clothes were fabulous, very rich and beautiful. I liked them best when they were long and with trains. I wasn’t as impressed when her clothing entered the roaring 20’s.
A look at some of her dresses. I liked the ones by Lanvin the best, full of texture and designs. I saw a document that she wrote detailing what she wanted to be buried in. There were also photos and you could see that she had a really small waist, maybe 19 inches or so.
I am very unfashionable but I enjoy seeing those who were, or are.
