Detail of the Madeleine Vionnet evening gown.  In 1918 Vionnet hired Marie-Louise Favot. As a dressmaker and trained artist, Favot  designed all of Vionnet's embroidery motifs. Though the motifs were designed in-house, the actual work was contracted out to Michonet, a Parisian embroidery firm founded in 1858. Michonet was later  bought by Albert Lesage.
