 Breathtaking Leonard Paris designer watercolor floral print ballgown dating back to their 1992 collection. In 1958 Jacques Leonard asked Daniel Tribouillard to start a new company: Leonard Fashion. A man of artistic temperament, Daniel Tribouillard set out to differentiate the brand in Haute-Couture. In 1960, he launched a revolutionary new process for printing English weaves, that were very fashionable at the time but said to be "unprintable". His clients were won over and the bold young man was applauded across the globe. Indeed, Leonard's originality is founded on a unique and recognizable style shared by all of its designs - and also, the fabrics used. This amazing garment is a wonderful example of the brand's genius. I love the "light as a feather" silk-taffeta and unique large-scale watercolor rainbow floral print used. The bodice has a dramatic built-in capelet construction that flows into a duel back-train design. The styling options are endless! The flattering nipped waist full-skirt silhouette is incredible; cut wide and flowy, giving the gown a beautiful airy feel. This is that gorgeous garment every fashionista looks for.
