Note:

Jean-Francois Daigre donated a large group of garments and accessories to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Some items, not retained by the Met, were transferred to the Texas Fashion collection. Most of the items so transferred were pieces that had been worn by his long-time partner, Valerian Stux-Rybar, although a few had been from the collection of Daigre himself.
