Fashion In History
Court Presentation Ensemble 
1896
Presentation at court was a special event for American women of Roebling’s social status and court protocol regulated men’s and women’s formal attire for the event. The lavish embroidery, sumptuous textiles and long train are characteristics of the formal gown, making it appropriate for the occasion. Roebling appears to have had a sentimental attachment to the ensemble; she chose to wear it again for her portrait by Charles-Émile-Auguste Carolus-Duran
