Christian Lacroix Fashion Designer Final Sketch For House Of Patou - Signed!

In February 1987, after a major success in Paris with his collection for Jean Patou, Christian Lacroix announced he was forming his own couture house. He said he would add a ready-to-wear collection next year.
The 35-year-old designer, who joined Jean Patou in 1981, backing came from Agache Financiere, who also controlled the House of Dior at the time!
The Lacroix collection and that of Yves Saint Laurent were the most influential collections of that last show - and the last for Christian Lacroix as a fashion designer for the House of Patou - and they formed the fashion industry's direction for 1987.
Offered here is a rare, original, with color added as well as notes saying what the model should wear with the dress, fabric, etc.. of the finished design/sketch by Christian Lacroix!
And it's his last one for the House of Patou before starting out on his own with the House of Lacroix!!
The name for the dress is also penciled in - technically titled "Female seeker of gold" but that may have just been a proper french way of saying "Gold Digger"!!
Other notations say "The model is to wear pink glove, hair in black knots, pendent earrings. The edge of the bodice to be decorated with little tubules of leather."
Lacroix initialed it in bottom right corner after he was satisfied!
This is the ultimate addition to any fashion lover/future designer's collection!
