We keep looking for great Louisboulanger gowns as we adore this contemporary of the great Vionnet who also successfully worked with bias cuts and find that her gowns always sell to savvy women who love the sensuality of the bias. Boulanger is less known that Vionnet and she was drawn to unusual trim as evidenced by a nickel-plated bow fastener used on this shining example of her talents. Is there a season that passes that doesn't reference a bias cut on a runway? The answer is "no" so go seasonless and ageless and surrender to this cire (that refers to the glaze of the fabric) satin gown with flounced sleeves. Just for kicks we took a photo of the dress back to front (an Angelina Jolie trick!) and that could be an option for one looking to define her own design!
