Three Women Elegant Edwardian Ladies Walking Fancy Hats Victorian Dress Paris Fashion 1900 Black and White Vintage Photography Photo Print

"Three Women Elegant Edwardian Ladies Walking Fancy Big Hats Victorian Dress Paris Fashion 1900 Black and White Vintage Photography Photo Print This was actually quite a shocking moment in the world of fashion! A turning point even! Here's the story from the intro for an exhibit on Margaine-Lacroix in 2013: \"In 1908 Jeanne Margaine-Lacroix sent three models to the Longchamp race-course clad in her form-revealing robes-tanagréennes. These corsetless dresses caused a sensation among Paris' fashionable crowd - a riot according to some newspaper reports. Worn without corsets and slit to the knee on one side over the most transparent of underskirts, their impact on the fashion world was instantaneous and resulted in major press coverage not only in Paris but around the world. In today's parlance the style immediately \"went viral\"....It was Margaine-Lacroix's daring vision that brought to an end the ideal of the rigidly corseted hour-glass figure, and ushered in the new, slim twentieth century silhouette.\" Please note: The first photo shows the cropped 8x10 size, the second shows the 5x7 size and the third photo shows the more complete 8x12 and 4x6 size photo print you will receive. Also note: This is from quite an old image that was on the cover of a magazine from 1908 so it will be a bit fuzzy and soft...but that also gives it a painterly vintage charm! This professionally printed black and white photo print is not matted and without a frame, that part is up to you. Shipped securely as soon as possible within 1-5 business days of purchase."
