Someone once said that 95 percent of the vintage clothing out there in the world will break your heart (because it is too small, too unaffordable, beyond repair, etc.) This antique Edwardian wool jacket would be the one that leaves you at the altar and runs off with your maid of honor. My heart is broken into many little pieces at the site of it.
EDWARDIAN & ART NOUVEAU 19c INTO THE 20c. Faberge, master jeweler, revived the use of gold filigree. Filigree again became very popular during the Edwardian period (late 1800s). Clothing and jewelry then moved into a vibrant new era called Art Nouveau. The fashionable passementerie (laces and trims) could now be copied in fine metal wires for jewelry. This ornamental work is also reflected in the work of Tiffany jewelers.
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.
