The floral dress is everywhere so much so that it seems like it’s always been around. But just how long has it been around?
The existence of the floral garment is over 1400 years old! Originating in China, the first floral garments were printed on silk. A rare and splendid fabric, only the wealthiest Europeans could afford them!
It then gained popularity during the Renaissance with Venetian lace.
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 not until the 18th century with the luxurious brocade that European couturiers added floral patterns to their creations. The most popular motifs were European flowers such as the rose, the daisy and the carnation. As with fabrics from the East, this silk fabric adorned with flowers in gold and silver thread was worn only by the wealthy.
Since the 20th century, the flower dress is worn all around the world! Symbolizing fertility and the season of nature’s awakening, refined, gorgeous and fragrant, the flower is one of the most popular designs for women around the world.
