Wedding Dress 1901, Italian, Made of silk and wool~~~~~The appliqués of this dress exemplify the whip-like curves and scrolls characteristic of the Art Nouveau period. Made in Rome for Mrs. Frederick Dand Sherman in 1901, while the white-on-white color palette would have been a conventional choice for a bride just after the turn of the century, the asymmetical trimming would have been a deliberately bold and fashion-conscious choice.
