M x M – The Pleats




Never before had I been so close to so many Mariano Fortuny dresses. It took a real effort to restrain myself from reaching out to touch them.

Hand-pleated and hand-sewn using the unique Mariano Fortuny technique, a process which the maître guarded zealously all his life and which remains a mystery to this day.

From the ”Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” exhibition, at The Met.
