Two years later, in 1910, Paul Poiret would design this afternoon dress which is a startling departure from the trained and often fussy day clothing that was the norm. His revolutionary ideas of form and function, freeing women from needless restriction is evident here. Nothing about this garment is design ed hinder movement. The bodice is fully cut, the sleeves are neither too tight or too loose, and the breadth of the skirt is great enough to allow for free strides when walking. Though when he first appeared in the design world only the most advanced of dressers chose his work, but his ideas were significant, and soon his notions permeated the fashionable world. Women and their needs were changing. He saw it and stepped up to help them out.
Well that's all folks for this week. I hope you enjoyed yourselves! Have a grand weekend.
