Dressing a Titanic Lady

1910-1911 Evening Dress by Paul Poiret: silk satin dress with silk tulle overdress, embroidery of beads and metallic thread, tulle peplum. "...In 1906, when the S-curve silhouette was still overwhelmingly popular, Poiret introduced high waist corsetless dresses. He shifted the fashion trend substantially from 19th-century dresses in artistic forms with excessive decoration toward innovative clothing that accentuated the natural beauty of the human body..." | JV
