The Story Behind The Dress : 
French novelist, memoirist, and journalist,  Amandine-Lucile- Aurore Dupin, born in Paris in 1804, who took on the pen name , "George Sand" is the muse for this silhouette.  She was one of the many notable 19th-century women who wore male attire in public, often without the required official permit! She lived independently, questioned society and rejected its sexual categories. She was ambitious and career-driven, in a time where only men dominated various fields. Aurore, as she was known to friends, decided she would have it all, too and succeeded in beating heavyweights like Victor Hugo and Honoré de Balzac as far as popularity went. She wrote and spoke about her political views, supporting the poor, working class and women's rights. So when you wear the George Sand jacket, remember to wear it boldly, joyfully and with aplomb!
