Monique Lhuillier has created an evening dress printed with an 18th century pattern for Wear LACMA: 50th Anniversary Edition.
Lhuillier is known for her designs that capture the essence of sophisticated luxury by provoking femininity, allure, and glamour that have made her renowned in the world of design. Lhuillier’s innate sense of style is prevalent throughout her bridal and ready-to-wear collections.
The fabric pattern was inspired by an 18th century French faience enameled pitcher in LACMA's permanent collection, seen here. The pitcher is an ideal fusion of the useful and the beautiful found in this exquisite example of French ceramics.
Wear LACMA: 50th Anniversary Edition: Wear LACMA is an art and fashion project featuring limited-edition pieces created by some of Los Angeles’s top designers and inspired by the museum’s permanent collection and exhibitions.
