Fundamental elements of her design process, Pergay's charming and detailed drawings provide insight into her creative vision. Each one conjures the wondrous world of diverse references from which she draws. Over the last 60 years, Pergay has designed for fashion houses including Christian Dior and Jacques Heim, undertaken commissions for fashion designer Pierre Cardin, and designed the lobby for The World Trade Center in Brussels. Her works can be found in the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and displayed in the homes of leading collectors around the world.
