A precious brooch,
to wear it as a jewel , to embellish a garment , to close a scarf , a coat or , why not , as a bow-tie. 
Piece Unique.
Collection " Les Couture Bows ".

A collection of brooches , all unique , made essentially with beautiful vintage fabrics , ribbons from 1930s to 1960s in rayon and silk velvet , gros-grain silk , raffia , cotton  , vintage beads from 1900s to 1980s , sometimes mixed with new, and sparkling vintage Czech rhinestone buttons from 1950s/60s.
 The rayon tassels are news , because I don't find old models ! 

I had the envy , when I started these bows , to realize something with a "French Couture" touch , chic , elegant , bubbly : a Parisian image that we all have in mind , from another time and an optimistic period , before the mass-produced ready-to-wear clothing.
