Germaine Émilie Krebs (1903–1993), known as Alix Barton and later as "Madame Grès", launched her design house under the name Grès in Paris in 1942. Formally trained as a sculptress, she produced haute couture designs for an array of fashionable women, including the Duchess of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Dolores del Río. Her signature was cut-outs on gowns that made exposed skin part of the design, yet still had a classical, sophisticated feel.

Madame Gres-premiere name in haute couture sense of design & style. Grès was a French haute couture fashion house. Parfums Grès is the associated perfume house, which still exists, and is now based in Switzerland

This is one that has a very very simple and boring style, but works to show what kind of things were worn 40 years ago. It's simple, bright, and overall a nice dress that can be utilised as a costume for a smaller part, as it is not a showstopper outfit
