Jean Dessés · Vintage Sunday

Vintage Sunday by Jean Dessés

On Thursday afternoon I went to see the Greek designers exhibition I told you about before and I’m going to write about it more next week and apart from the modern designers like Mary Katrantzou and Marios Schwab they displayed some stuff of the older ones as well.
One of them was Jean Dessés and other than his actual creations, you could see these beautiful drawings he did of his designs. I thought they were very pretty and perfect for Vintage Sunday post. The Greek designer moved to Paris in 1924, where he started own couture house in 1937. In 1946 he created the Laroche Institute together with Guy Laroche.
He died in 1970 and the label with him, but there was a big interest in his clothes again with the boom of vintage clothing and celebrities like Naomi Campbell and Renee Zelweger wore his creations to big events.
Have a stylish day.
