In a time when almost every item of clothing is constructed of some type of synthetic fabric and very little attention is paid to detail the longing for such beautiful fabrics and magnificent construction is high. These gowns are from the early 1900's and are in the Edwardian style. The long, sleek silhouette is flattering for most figures and far more comfortable than the earlier 'wasp' waist styles. This style is a fabulous choice for a unique wedding gown to express your personality.

Evening Dress, 1912. Simcox, a New York dressmaker, highlights the Egyptian revival in fashion with this evening dress. ancient-Egypt influenced designs were a recurring theme during the 19th and early 20th centuries, reaching their height in the 1920s with Howard Carter's discovery of King Tutankhamen's tomb in 1922. The curved bead motifs flanking the blue scarab mimic the representation of disk and horn headdress of Hathor and Isis. The asymmetric bodice is a style popular after 1910.
