Rhinestone-embellished silk evening dress by Mme. Besancon de Wagner for House of Drécoll, French, 1910. Drecoll was a major Parisian house during the early 20th century. This dress reflects an interest in historicism; the empire style and embroidery evoke the neoclassical fashions of the Napoleonic era.

Round Gown: ca. 1795, Italian, figured silk satin, embroidered hem, trimmed with fly fringe and tassels. "The round gown is a one-piece dress with a high waistline reaching just below the bust... Although women's dresses had consisted of a robe, a petticoat and a stomacher in the Rococo age, in this period the bodice was united with the skirt. This gown is called a round gown, because of its shape."
