“The sampling of Jaqueline de Ribes wardrobe and design, accompanied by images of her life, suggested the stylistic strategies that become evident during her childhood and were refined by her early exposure to dress-makers and fitters. Her innate and self-taught talents developed as a client of haute couture, when  she was given privileged access to the ateliers and supported in her first true expressions as a designer”

“By 1982, when the Countess established her own design house she burnished her signature style to perfection. Inevitably, her collections are an essay in personal philosophy. For the Countess, beauty is anchored in creativity and creativity in turns rooted in knowledge and technique.”
