Thayaht Between art and Fashion: The exhibition includes sixty drawings executed between 1919 and 1935, which have recently been acquired by Vionnet and have never been shown. The exquisite works portray the inspirational collaboration between Madeleine Vionnet and the futurist artist Thayaht, born Ernesto Michahelles, an eclectic industrial design pioneer and inventor of the tuta or coveralls, among many other things.

Thayaht Between art and Fashion: “The roots of the house are a constant source of inspiration and research, says creative director and chair Goga Ashkenazi, we work principally on mannequins, draping by hand as did Madeleine, who found in Thayaht the artist to interpret her style with a sense of movement and color.

Thayaht Between art and Fashion: “The exhibit is unique and demonstrates a little known aspect of the aesthetic of the house. I was extremely fortunate to come across these drawings; they reveal a focal point not only of her work, but also of her cultural vision.” Ashkenazi adds.
