Sally Gates, one of the premier pastel portrait painters in America today, came to our shop in Paris this Fall to purchase one of our beautiful dresses for her granddaughter’s pastel portrait.  We are truly honored and absolutely stunned by her masterpiece.

Portrait by Sally Gates

Extremely talented, her paintings perfectly capture the personality of her young subjects. Working from posed photography her portraits are astonishingly realistic, at first sight the difference between picture and painting is often hard to spot ! Meant to be kept as a precious heirloom, they are a beautiful celebration of childhood.
