“Beautiful Ginevra” Dress
Natural flocked velvet renaissance dress
Early Renaissance epoch is one of the most marvelous and amazing history periods. The beginning of the art and cultural prime influenced impressively the fashion of the period.
This dress of the early Renaissance combine naivete and elegance of the silhouette with the complexity and richness of trimming and details. The original dress typical for the second half of the XVth century was known as "gamurra" and referred to the so called Florentine fashion period. Dress was usually worn over corset and chemise, which are not included but are available in our store.
The dress is made of natural cotton velvet (one of the limited fabric versions has flocked design), the skirt has 8 or 10 gussets depending on the customer's size. The dress requires 13-16 yards of fabric and the length of the skirt hem exceeds 11 yards. It is decorated with trim with pomegranate ornament exclusively designed by ArmStreet and manufactured for this project. Bodice and sleeves are embroidered with the artificial pearls and silvery lacet. Sleeves are attached to the dress with the help of three velvet laces and can be fastened with buttons on the wrists. Bodice of the dress has cut-outs where chemise can be seen. The dress is laced at the front. Bodice and sleeves have viscose lining.
This dress requires rather precise fit so please be careful while taking your measurements. Dress can be worn with or without corset though corset will definitely increase authenticity and emphasis of the outline. However you should be ready to pay for the beauty and historical authority with the necessity to keep a moral backbone continuously.
