Madame Grès nèe Alix Grès began her career in the 1930s. As a master draper, she was known for her monochromatic Grecian-inspired jersey column dresses that preserved her legacy in the fashion industry. Grès began experimenting with cut and shape in the early 1970s designing couture looks for day, like this wool asymmetrically closed coat worn by a model on the balcony of La Maison Grès near the Place Vendôme on January 17, 1980.
