c. 1930s Black Silk Charmeuse Bias-Cut Gown w/ Beaded Net Bodice.


Black Lace Evening 1930s Gown with Nude Netting

Weeks (French). Evening dress, ca. 1911. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Gift of Mrs. C. Phillip Miller, 1957 (C.I.57.17.3) | The silhouette of the 1910s is a revival of the Directoire and Empire styles, but here it is blended with a turn-of-the-century monobosom. Once again, a new silhouette was founded in reference to past style. The revealing neckline conforms to an unsupported bust, creating a soft, languorous silhouette.
