Shoes worn by Nellie Melba, 1920s
Made by Farmer’s, Sydney
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.
French, circa 1911
Raquel Torres, Edna Murphy, Corliss Palmer, Laura Plant, Jeanette Loff and Ruth Elder in 1927, Fashion Parade
I love the black and white hat in picture #4!
