Vionnet was a pioneering fashion line in the 20's and 30's until the founder, Madeleine Vionnet, shut her doors in 1939. She had been the first to design for comfort with draping and wrapping instead of using buttons and zippers. In addition, Vionnet developed some of the first dress-design copyrighting methods. She dressed Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich.
Earlier this year, the fashion brand received a revival from Matteo Marzotto and Gianni Castigliono, who bought the rights to Vionnet. They hired Rodolfo Paglialunga to take over designing for the line. He kept his designs reminiscent to Vionnet's original character. The spring 2010 collection had many long tunics, versatile dresses, and more.
