Dress from the same collection as the one posted here.

Woman's Evening Gown, 1951
Costume/clothing principle attire/entire body, Silk chiné taffeta and silk organza patterned plain weave, Center back length: 50 in. (127 cm)

During the eighteenth century the silhouette of French dress skirts evolved into a wide horizontal profile. The understructure that achieved this shape was the panier (basket). Manifested at the beginning of the century as modest protrusions at the hip, the panier expanded to a width of six feet as the century progressed.

During the twentieth century, numerous designers were inspired by paniers. Gilbert Adrian used pleats and petticoats to create the effect, while Christian Lacroix chose textiles with body and substance. Thierry Mugler ingeniously allowed the stiffness of heavy cotton twill and tailoring to act as a structural device.

Adrian velvet hat, 1940s

This unique, softly sculptured velvet hat is an ingenious takeoff on the beret. Like a traditional beret, the top can be tilted and draped to suit the wearer. The top is a flat piece of self-lined velvet attached to a head band.

The headband adds a slight lift and definition to the crown, while holding the hat on the head. The front section is stiffened with black net. The hat was originally sold at the Julius Garfinckel store in Washington.
