The beautiful flowing silhouette of this dress is distinctive. The swinging long fringe adds ripple-like movements to the dress, and is a perfect match with the Art Nouveau’s fascination with organic themes.
In the Belle Époque, there was a trend for women to wear S-curve silhouette dresses, with a well-developed bosom projected forward and hips thrust back to emphasize an extremely slender waist. This trend also represented the creation of the curving forms favored by the new artistic movement, Art Nouveau.
