Soo... another ballgown post. (^_^) This time we are looking at the amazing work of Worth. Charles Frederick Worth is a legend, the real father of the haute couture industry, he has a lot to answer for! If I was Cinderella I would demand that my fairy godmother poof me into one of his creations. Nothing made nowadays even scrapes at the surface of some of his designs. So I though it was only fair to include some of the ball gowns...
|1887, Love the combination of colours in this gown, |
and the embroidery and beading.
|1893-94, these sleeves are amazing.|
|1898-1903, The beading/sequining in this dress is quite amazing |
(must have taken ages). I can kind of see a face in the skirt (eyes and mouth)
Anyone else see it???
|1898, butterflies help give shape to the skirt, |
and soft floral fabrics on the bodice give the impression of real flowers
|1900, This one is so cute, |
notice the corn embroidered on the skirt.
