Did you know?
It is commonly believed that the flowered garment originated in China and dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907)! Imported from China via the Silk Road, these garments were mostly decorated with floral motifs such as peonies. These luxurious fabrics were only available to the wealthy classes of Europe!
With the famous Venetian lace, it was not until the 16th century that floral patterns began to be widely incorporated into European craftsmanship.
With Ottoman merchants in the 16th and 17th centuries, Europe experienced the fashion of Persian velvets! These luxurious confections were embellished with floral motifs such as tulip, vine or pomegranate.
On solid fabrics, it was only in the 18th century with the luxurious brocade that French and Italian couturiers added flowers to their confections. The most popular motifs were European flowers such as the rose, the daisy and the carnation. Again, this silk fabric magnified with gold and silver flowers was only available to the nobility or certain bourgeois.
Since the 20th century, the flower dress is everywhere! A symbol of fertility and the return of light, refined, beautiful and fragrant, the flower is one of the most worn designs by women around the world.
