      Abstract

      Vionnet without the bias cut would be a fashion tragedy. The bias cut liberated women from the restrictions of corsetry and padding in the 1920’s and 1930’s and established a sinuous and elegant silhouette that defined a modernist look. This look has become a classic that was fully exploited by Vionnet and her innovations permeate throughout the work of many contemporary fashion designers.
