From an exhibit of Poiret designs at a "small palace" at Fort Saint-André, a medieval fort at Villeneuve-les-Avignon, France. In 1916, the French painter Gustave Fayet bought the decaying palace for Elsa Koeberlé, another painter, who renovated it. On the top floor there is now a museum dedicated to Koeberlé's favorite couturier, Paul Poiret. Janet Robbins Audio blog
