Rayon crepe, bugle and seed beads, circa 1926, USA, 76.125.1, gift of Mrs. Mirsky Couturier Madeleine Vionnet fought copying of her designs on several fronts. For her “Little Horses” dress, she collaborated with embroiderer Albert Lesage to create a difficult-to-copy beading technique. Nevertheless, her beaded horses were reproduced in this unauthorized version, though the lower portion of the dress was eliminated.
