Map Drapery


In a pinch, Elisabeth Lecourt’s dresses may be able to lead you through rivers and mountains. The French designer forgoes fabric for vintage maps, creating her simple and beautifully delicate frocks from old maps of the U.S., France, Los Angeles, India, etc. Drawn to their poetic nature, Lecourt hopes her dresses can represent “a portrait of people through their clothes, like a blue-print of their soul.”
