    incorporated a loose panel of box pleated fabric falling from the shoulders to the hem at the back Today it is sometimes called a Watteau gown because it is seen in so many paintings by French artist Jean Antoine Watteau 1664 1721 The gown currently on display as part of our exhibition Fleurs Botanicals in Dress presents a unique silhouette from every angle flat in front voluminous in back and inflated at the hips But the unnatural proportions have a purpose to show off as much expensive fabric as possible In this case the fabric is an exquisite floral silk brocade shot with metallic threads and trimmed with metallic lace and linen lace In an era when all textiles were hand woven this excess yardage was an unmistakable status symbol It also makes the gown extremely rare for many eighteenth century gowns were dismantled and remade to fit later wearers Helen Larson spent 50 years assembling her collection now it is in danger of being dispersed forever or absorbed into another private collection inaccessible to students researchers and the general public The FIDM Museum needs your help to save the Larson collection You can make a contribution of any amount online or by mail or join our 4for400 social media campaign to donate 4 or more via text Donations are tax deductible if your company has a matching gift program your support will go even further The FIDM Museum has until the end of 2015 to finish raising the necessary funds so please join the campaign and help make fashion history Posted by FIDM Museum Permalink Comments You can follow this conversation by subscribing to the comment feed for this post Verify your Comment Previewing your Comment Posted by This is only a preview Your comment has not yet been
