Madame Carven, another legend we have to say "Good bye!" to unwillingly and forever, passed away  earlier today aged 105. Marie-Louise Carven-Grog, born Carmen de Tommaso, she was one of the original couturiers who, unlike Dior, Chanel and Schiaparelli, turned to women of a petite statue and made it her mission to dress them in beautiful, elegant, but easy to wear designs taking them from a privilege fashion salon to the mainstream.
