This gown is a true reflection of the design style of Grès. Marcelle Alix produced collections that were influenced by that magical touch, with the use of yards of jersey fabric, intricately pleated and draped. This gown has numerous hooks and eyes, and press studs to secure and wrap the gown about the wearer.
