Fashion In History
Evening Dress (Detail)
House of Worth  
1898-1900  
The superb example of dressmaking shown here reflects the aesthetic of the late nineteenth century, not only in its striking Art Nouveau pattern of black velvet scrolls on an ivory satin ground, but also in the fashionable S-curve of its silhouette. The textile was woven à la disposition, with each section of the costume patterned to its shape, making the fabric’s design intrinsic to the composition of the dress.
