Cindy - The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA came to my
art history class and gave a great presentation on the history of French
fashion, so I would suggest contacting them. Here is their website: Perhaps you could also get information from the
Metropolitcan Museum of Art Costume Institute, and/or the Fashion
Institute of Technology in Manhattan.

Hope this helps.
