Great finds, ikeya.seki

The dress in post #110 is probably very rare. I haven't seen Fortuny dresses like this one before.

Left: Mariano Fortuny, coat, copper silk velvet, c.1920, Italy, 2007.22.1, gift of Parker J. Collier
Left: Fortuny, “Delphos” dress, lavender silk, 1928, Italy
Quote:
This evening coat is printed with an ancient, Middle Eastern “Tree of Life” motif. Fortuny often referenced ancient cultures in his work, creating garments that defied the changing trends of fashion. / The “Delphos” dress is a thoroughly modern garment inspired by ancient Greek costume. The design originated circa 1907 and the pleated fabric was made using a process unique to Fortuny. Originally meant to be worn only at home, the dress evolved into eveningwear by the 1920s.
