Marie Christophe’s wirework mannequins have always been an inspiration to me, as you can see in my new collection of floral fashion dress forms. 

She made these for Musee de la Mode, Paris in 1998  — can it really have been that long ago? 

The peacock strutted for Chanel; the giraffe loped for Issey Miyake; the swan swanned for Jean-Paul Gaultier; the hare hopped for Yohji Yamamoto; the ostrich sashayed for Christian Lacroix; and the rooster crowed only for Comme des Garcon. Magnifique!
