Detail of the Madeleine Vionnet evening gown. In 1918 Vionnet hired Marie-Louise Favot. As a dressmaker and trained artist, Favot designed all of Vionnet's embroidery motifs. Though the motifs were designed in-house, the actual work was contracted out to Michonet, a Parisian embroidery firm founded in 1858. Michonet was later bought by Albert Lesage.
