Marie Antoinette's Private Bath

Marie Antoinette's wardrobe must be a designer's dream to re-create... and Belgian designer, Isabelle de Borchgrave, received that very chance. Marie Antoinette's private bath, located in the small apartment that was built in 1782 on the ground floor of Versailles, just completed renovations taking it back to the original designs.
Yesterday marked the opening of "La pièce des bains de Marie-Antoinette" at Versailles, where Isabelle de Borchgrave's exquisite paper creations have been installed on a permanent basis. Isabelle de Borchgrave portayed three different female characters, the Queen and two assistants, basing her designs on portraits and historical documents. 

Isabelle de Borchgrave's resume is très impressive. You can visit her website here. Her Facebook page can keep you in the loop here. Her San Francisco exhibition, held earlier this year, can be seen here.
