Fortuny At The Castle
Two newly identified Mariano Fortuny Gowns to go on exhibit from September 6th – 27th at Hammond Castle Museum in Gloucester.
It’s not every day one discovers vintage couture tucked away in a closet. Recently, a visitor on a tour noticed the iconic fabric and raised the point that she believed them to be Mariano Fortuny gowns. She was right!
The two gowns, neatly folded on a shelf in Irene’s closet for decades, date between 1920 and 1930 and are velvet tabard gowns in Fortuny’s “Eleonora” Renaissance style and feature Fortuny’s famous pleating.
