PARIS/FRANCE: Each dress comes with a drawing, a sketch of each skirt. Starting point of all creation, the illustration is an integral part of design, not only as a mode of expression, but also for the development of patterns and prints, as well as for making boards for magazines. Artists are often even new creations directly on the catwalks.
