French designer Christian Dior was born this day in 1905. Dior reveled in the paradox of the natural and the sophisticated. He was both a symbol of French taste as well as a gardener, farmer, and mill owner.

1910-1913 evening dress, @nasjonalmuseet, hand embroidered with artificial diamonds and glass beads, the fashionable silhouette at the time created with the use of the high-waist velvet band, and the one placed around the knees, to create a hobble skirt.

Fashion designer Cristobal #Balenciaga was born on this day in 1895. Keenly historicist, Balenciaga invented a fantasy of eighteenth-century court dress, knowing that Marie-Antoinette favored overdresses with swags anchored by roses.

Dress history can be myth busting. My 19thc dress diary compiled by a woman in Lancashire from the 1840s shows so many fashionable fabrics that she was wearing, similar to this c1850 dress. Women living in provincial regions like fashion, then as now @metmuseum #19thcentury

A playful dress here, that creates the illusion of many layers & fabrics when in fact it is only one of printed cotton. The trompe l?oeil effect here has a pattern that is supposed to suggest a ruffle of silk edging each hem of the garment, 1870s @metmuseum #fashionhistory #1870s

One of the highlights of the new exhibition at @Fashion_Museum is this glorious glittering mauve gown worn by Queen Alexandra in 1910. She was in her mid sixties at the time - which is one in the face for people who think women should become invisible once they're past fifty.

#weddingwednesday - a Victorian one at that! @metmuseum 1874 gown. Over skirts were popular during this period, creating gathered layers. The back of a bodice such as this one with the long train, was called a postillion. The three quarter length sleeves were also fashionable.

Victorian dinner dress, 1890-95. According to the @metmuseum, the embroidery on this dress is similar to the Rococo designs of Philippe de Lasalle. His 'textile designs were adored in the court of Catherine II.' If you look closely there are details of bows and bird cages.

The polonaise gown first came into fashion in the 1770s. It was a style of gown with a close-fitting bodice and the back of the skirt gathered up into three separate puffed sections to reveal the petticoat below. @metmuseum #polonaise #fashion #18thcentury

Although this c1865 evening dress reminds me of the knitted toilet roll doll covers that were briefly popular in the 1970s I still rather like its many layers, white blond lace interspersed with bronze silk detailing. Made by Mme Roger in France now in the @mfaboston #1860s

Steam is the theme for today?s #victorianfebruary and with the advent of the railways, a whole new style of dress was born. Promenading became a seaside entertainment, to walk along the beachside fronts, to see & be seen in neat promenade dresses, 1880s @metmuseum #FashionHistory

1880 dinner dress, @metmuseum. This garment has some provenance - vital to any fashion historian. The garment belonged to an Amelia Beard Hollenback, who settled in Brooklyn during the 19th century. This tasseled dress was custom-made by a Brooklyn based dressmaker.

Five hours stuck in traffic warrants something joyful to finish the day & a playful polka dotted Jacques Fath strapless dress from 1953 should do it, seen here with a Louise Dahl-Wolfe photograph of a similar Fath design from 1955, Kyoto Cost Inst #kyoto #fashionhistory #1950s

Several of Madeleine Vionnet?s day dresses from the #1930s display this geometric display of drawn thread work. Silk crepe cut otherwise very simply is decorated using this traditional technique but the cut, colour and contrasting leather belt make it thoroughly modern @V_and_A

A piece of Victorian gothic this morning, Day 15 of #victorianfebruary is ?macabre? and for me I have always found the 19thc practice of memorial hair jewellery to be a little macabre although a remembrance of a loved one. Seen here with classic 1860s mourning dress @metmuseum

An unusual ensemble of paisley cotton trimmed with velvet & with a matching bag. Was the bag the result of a leftover fabric scrap or part of a deliberate matching set? An intriguing 1880s piece @museumatFIT #1880s #fashionhistory
