While in paris on a recent trip, Hester found a kindred spirit and a source of inspiration in designer Madame Grès, at an amazing exhibition in Paris at the Musee Bourdelle.
“I wanted to be a sculptor — for me it is just the same to work with fabric or stone”
- Madame Grès
Grès is the legendary creator of the draped dress, and just as she draped fabric, Hester drapes and works with leather in her creations. Who knows what wonderful new bag design Hester will create as a result of seeing this beautiful exhibition!
