And the Answer is...PACO RABANNE

Paco Rabanne led the field of radical experimentation in elite fashion design. Using techniques borrowed from jewellery, he created sculptural dresses in unconventional materials, which inspired inferior copies in London. Baroness Helen Bachofen von Echt wore this dress to a party in New York where she danced with Frank Sinatra.
Donated by the Baroness to the V&A

We all love those shopping sites that host flash sales Net-a-Porter, Gilt Groupe, HauteLook etc. Do you think that it's possible to host a flash sale on eBay? Every few weeks a specially curated collection of designer items would be for sale for one week only.
A mix of new, gently worn and vintage from your favorite designers-Chanel, Missoni and Pucci to name just a few...
Any interest or feedback? I would love to hear it!
