11 viewsThe September, 1913 French fashion sketch from which our replica was developed. The original text described the gown as being made of emerald green silk with white silk chiffon overlays, and we created our replica in the same fabrics and colours. Jan 12, 2016

6 viewsIn late 1912 to 1914, designers became enamoured with the idea of unusual trains on evening gowns. Some -- like this one -- were cut as short, square trains, while others were knotted, draped, pointed or double-pointed, or even cut to one side or the other.

By 1915, trains on evening gowns, except for perhaps a decorative streamer or two, had disappeared. By 1915 evening gowns were no longer floor-length in any case.

11 viewsA sublime late-Edwardian evening or dinner gown, in the typically complex multi-layered cut so fashionable at the time. The gown is built up on a boned ivory taffeta foundation, with a China silk skirt lining to just below knee level, so altogether there were 8 layered sections to this gown. Jan 12, 2016
