Fortuny At The Castle

  • Share:
Name: Fortuny At The Castle
Date: September 6, 2019 - September 27, 2019
Event Description:

It’s not every day one discovers vintage couture tucked away in a closet.  Recently, a visitor on a tour noticed some 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, are velvet tabard gowns in Fortuny’s “Eleonora” Renaissance style and feature Fortuny's famous pleating.  

Don't miss your chance to see what the avant garde were wearing nearly 100 years ago. For a brief 3 weeks in September, these very special gowns will be on display at Hammond Castle Museum. Nowhere else in the country are Fortuny gowns on display.
