I went to an exhibition of French fashion 1947-1957 which featured lots of beautiful dresses.

Image

In February 1947, the collection of a couturier newly installed in Avenue Montaigne changes the fashion scene for good.
The models lithely winding their way through the salons of the Couture house are wearing clothes in lengths and shapes that are about to create a revolution. The long, full skirts, more swirling than ever before, send out shock waves after the years of hardship and restriction imposed by the Second World War. The emphatically cinched waists implying the return of the corset, the extended tails giving the recomposed silhouette a new allure, the slender shoulders and the flattering necklines all set the style fore a new kind of femininity which is to serve as an ideogram throughout the 1950s.
The collection causes a scandal on both sides of the Atlantic.
Four years after the arrival of this so-called New Look, Christian Dior single-handedly represents 49% in total turnover of French fashion exports. His shows not only receive wildly enthusiastic media coverage, they are a commercial success too. The 1950s are also dominated by the influence of male couturiers have on fashion, which makes femininity something of a sublime expression but also a cage. Jacques Fath is one of its craftsmen. Cristobal Balenciaga, master among masters, writes the second half of the 20th century with his scissors and fabrics in architectural volumes. Still others such as Jacques Heim, Jacques Griffe, Jean Dessès and Antonio Castillo, soon to be joined by Pierre Cardin or Hubert de Givenchy, help to build an edifice of elegance that some still consider to be unrivalled.
Mademoiselle Chanel rebels against this stylistic domination with its historical and archaic overtones. She orchestrates her return. In 1954, at the age of 71, her collection first snubbed then acclaimed crowns her famous suit as the solution to clothes whose contemporary style goes without saying. An androgynous silhouette materialises and heralds the sweeping changes of the decade to come.

With Monsieur Dior's sudden disappearance, in 1957, the glorified repertory of the 1950s comes to a close. "A face emerges from the shadows, Yves the 21 year old heir apparent", is the headline in Paris Match.
Yves Mathieu-Saint-Laurent, whom Christian Dior considered as his spiritual heir, is appointed Artistic Director of the House.
The figures reveal another meaningful factor. Of the 106 Couture Houses existing in 1946, there are no more than 60 in 1952 then 36 in 1958. The 1950s lead into the advent of ready-to-wear, encouraging its appearance and its threat of democratisation against which haute couture is to have a hard time finding a suitable contemporary response. Undoubtedly, it is for this reason that these years are thought of as an isolated decade in fashion history. There are those who constantly hope for its return and its exacerbated chic.

Funny article from Life, Oct 1947:

MODEL LOSES NEW LOOK
In the U.S. the "New Look" has inspired only some minor grumbling about the French who supposedly invented it. But recently some French housewives proved that not every Frenchwoman likes the new styles.
To get originality into pictures of the new dresses a women's newspaper sent a photographer and a stylish model to the tough market of Paris' Rue Lepic. It seemed they hoped to achieve "contrast" pictures. But a Rue Lepic housewife took one look at the "Look" and then screamed, "Pipe this doll! She pays 40,000 francs on her dresses and our kids get no milk." Excitable Frenchwomen took the cue. The housewives pelted the model with vegetables. Still unsatisfied, they rushed in and started ripping off her dress. The approach of gendarmes saved the model's modesty, but not before the photographer took pictures of a scene that will give many a U.S. housewife - and husband - some vicarious pleasure.

C'est le gag de la collection d'Hubert de Givenchy dont les robes de soie simples, jeunes et joyeuses sont dédieées aux petits pois, aux ananas, aux raisins etc. Ces tissus crées par le jeune couturier ont été réalisés pa Madame Brossin de Méré. Les Parisiennes les ont regardés, applaudis et adoptés en cinq minutes.

There was way more I wanted to photograph, but at this point a burly man told me sternly that I would have to stop taking photographs or he would escort me from the premises...
Great exhibition though, so if you're in Paris before 2 November head over to the Palais Galliera

images from bela's link (these are all s/s 2015):

Image

rightmost dress with the gentle structured pleat—amazing, i love the look of the navy fabric opening up, and how the shadows get caught on the inside of the pleat/fold.

Image

i'm a huge fan both of thin pleats and layered dresses—i really like how the right has a textural "pattern" with the pleats, and the grid pattern in the layer underneath. wonder if the pleated layer moves independently, or not—and where it's attached to the more fitted underneath.

Image

these stark fastening things are so cool. this actually feels very fantasy-novel-y, i can imagine some heroine escaping into the woods and her moss-green dress/cloak is fastened with a flat and wide metal pin or something.

Image

middle dress. i love all bathrobe dress things. reminds me of this rodebjer kimono dress/coat/something/whatever/it/is/it's/pretty/cool:

Love the way the outfits are shown three in a row, like a capsule wardrobe.

Ann Demeulmeester SS2012 - collection inspired by the travels and explorations of an imagined 19 century adventuress - featured some absolutely beautiful light dresses, oftentimes sheer, used as sensual layering. Sometimes the dresses were left as delicate, exotic pieces - sometimes combined with heavier duty gear. I love how fragile and elegant they are.

Issey Miyake dress, photographed by Irving Penn. I got the Taschen Pleats Please book at a warehouse sale this summer—hoping to scan some of the lovely photography and ad campaigns in it for you all soon. Conceptually probably my favorite brand ever, although when I visited the Pleats Please store I couldn't figure out how to put anything on. Got lost in a shirt for 10 minutes trying to figure out which hole was the neck hole.
