Marcel Duchamp."With one stroke of an extremely talented hand Hyacinthe creates a line of such delicacy that it describes the nature of form and the intensity of light to create the illusion of movement in time. This is our great work then, this is the intention of 2 dimensional art, the distinguishing factor from photography...the indescribable ability of a great artist to capture a moment...to infer the past, the present and the future. This is why we draw, why we make graphic and visual art...to infer. This is why Hyacinthe is truly a master artist."

The Ready To Wear adapted from the custom mades are laid on canvas and painted by members of the workshop staff under Hyacinthe's direction. In an article featuring Hyacinthe fashions, writing in the New York Post on November 4th, 1976, Ruth Preston:"Many women order the first time because they are not true sizes and need their clothes custom made: they continue as clients because they like the unique look of the handpainted fabrics and the individual shaping."
