Fortuny silk Delphos tea gown, 1920s

Fortuny used a thin silk satin more finely pleated than anything ever seen in costume. His famous hand-pleating method has never been successfully duplicated. Because the seams are so tightly pleated, they are difficult to detect.

The garment is incredibly soft and liquid, molding to the curves of the body, like the draped dress of the ancient Greeks. Fortuny's contemporaries described him as "an alchemist": he achieved magical effects by secret techniques unfathomable to outsiders.

The feather-weight tea gown is weighted on the shoulders and sides with strings of clear, striated Venetian glass beads, necessary to weigh down the lightweight silk. The antique pink color is subtly shaded. (I have never before seen this lovely hue—dark Carnation pink). To keep the pleats in place, the dress should be stored twisted like a skein of yarn.
