Madonna single handidly brings Couture house back to life

And it seems that Madonna's interest in Simpson - the American
socialite who prompted King Edward VIII to abdicate the throne of
England in 1936 - has given the clothiers who styled the historical
figure a new lease of life.
Madonna is now benefiting from their period designs: "I have been
wearing Vionnet, who made a lot of the Duchess' (Simpson) dresses and
they're a couture house that closed down for many years and they're
sort of redoing their shop. They made a lot of Andrea's costumes for
the film."
