MUSEUMS OF THE ARTS DECORATIFS -
Arts Décoratifs is a private organization governed by the law
of 1901 on not-for-profit associations and recognized as being in the
public interest. It originated in 1882, in the wake of the Universal
Exhibitions, when a group of collectors banded together with the idea
of promoting the applied arts and developing links between industry
and culture, design and production.
The goal of the Arts of Fashion Foundation is to develop and promote creativity in Fashion and give access to fashion students and young professionals to the best possible source of creative fashion education, as well as allowing the Arts of Fashion to fund and develop other creative and educational projects to benefit fashion students and the Academia.

From Madeleine Vionnet to Issey Miyake, every designer has at one time or another explored its own infinity of pleating. Most of the 3000 molds for pleats were designed and made by Gerard Lognon's grand father: Georges. Actually the inherited mold consists of two sheets of cardboard Kraft/Oxboard which fit perfectly.The fabric is spread all over on it and then carefully by hand folds. The whole ends up in the oven for steam press. The Parisian workshop of Gerard Lognon has become another unique Haute Couture craftmanship spot where still meets greatest designers from Dior and Hermes to name only a few luxury brands, their hord of assistants and even some inspired emerging designers looking for innovative and new experimentations.
According to Gérard Lognon, there is no specific nomenclature in terms of classification. However every pleated pattern is named including peacock, flower, and even azzaro. There is also some large pleating family such as the Fortuny but also the flat, the sun and the accordion...
