Coming from Europe, more specifically in France, in the city of Vichy (so why the name), the place became known for manufacturing a cotton fabric with the pattern for aprons and T-shirts frock design

The print began its first steps in fashion around the 1930s, stamping the classic well-belted dresses of midi or max length in haute couture, used by ladies of high society.

But it was in 1950 that it gained its expression with the iconic Brigitte Bardot, the print gained its post as chic and stylish. The actress came to be considered one of the greatest influences in the fashion world, by time magazine. Both in films and in the daily life of the actress she used several Vichy patterns. But the pinnacle was when she wore a wedding dress all in Vichy plaid, with actor Jacques Charrier.
