    Diane Arbus "Madame Alix Gres"

  • Barb Smith

    Germaine Émilie Krebs (1903-1993), known as Alix Barton and later as "Madame Grès", relaunched her design house under the name Grès in Paris in 1942. Prior to this, she worked as "Alix" or "Alix Grès" during the 1930s. 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, and Jacqueline Kennedy. Her signature was cut-outs on gowns that made exposed skin part of the design.
