The Pleated Model was designed by Captain Molyneux in 1933 and the exclusive design was purchased in Paris by Miss Lillian Wightman for her store Le Louvre . Captain Molyneux opened his fashion house in 1919 and the designer quickly became known for an impeccably refined simplicity. Patrons included Greta Garvo, Marlene Dietrich and Vivien Leigh.
This year marks the celebration of 80 years of our incredible pleated model. It has served the ladies of Melbourne and Australia across three generations in many different colours and looks. It remains the only piece made on site at Le Louvre to this day.
Fittings and consultations for the Pleated Model available by appointment.
