There has been a lot of talk about the historicizing designs of the19th century due to the Folie Textile exhibit,
but we've been repeating that trait ever since - just not exclusively. Franck Sorbier has taken historic period silks from the collections of Rubelli and Tassinari et Chatel to create a modern-romantic, 21st century Haute Couture collection Winter 2013-14.
