Find out more about our Bohemian Lusitania Flower Dress!
A popular motif for women around the world, yet the history of the flower dress is often misunderstood.
The appearance of the flowered garment is very old as it is said to date back to the 7th century! Imported from China via the Silk Road, these garments were mostly adorned with floral motifs such as the peony. A rare and splendid fabric, only the richest Europeans could afford them!
With the famous Venetian lace, it was not until the Renaissance that floral patterns began to be widely incorporated into European crafts.
With Ottoman merchants in the 16th and 17th centuries, Europe experienced the fashion of Persian velvets! These luxurious fabrics were adorned with floral motifs such as tulip, vine or pomegranate.
On heavy fabrics, it was not until the 18th century with the luxurious brocade that European couturiers added floral patterns to their creations. The fashionable motifs were European flowers such as the rose, the daisy and the carnation. Again, this silk fabric adorned with gold and silver flowers was only available to the wealthy.
Today, the flower dress is appreciated worldwide! Evocative of fertility and spring, delicate, beautiful enchanting and fragrant, the flower is one of the most worn designs by women around the world.
