Hat (American), Met Museum, 1893-95
A court jester fancy dress costume made by Madame Elise circa 1890.
Worth Wedding Gown, Glenbow Museum, 1892
Though it’s out of order with the rest of the dresses, I had to post this Worth gown that vintagevision recommended. Isn’t it absolutely striking? I know from experience how difficult it is to manipulate and elegantly display silk satin, so I’m in awe of the expertise and beauty of this garment. C’est magnifique!
