At the turn of the 20th century, the progressive emancipation of women and their greater presence in public spaces contributed to the decline of corsets and multiple layers of clothing. In particular, the dresses became more comfortable and allowed a greater range of movement. This beige lace and transparent chiffon evening dress, which drapes the body without imposing any structure, is characterized by its very low waist and short length showing the knees. It is part of the flapper style, iconic of the Roaring Twenties, a dress style for young women popularized by actress Colleen Moore in the movie Flaming Youth (1923). Unknown donor.
