Last week there wasn’t a great deal of love for Maria Anna and her fabulously (there, I said it!) geometric gown. A few of you shared my excellent taste (there, I said it again), many of you were ‘meh’, and a few of you really disliked it. It came in at 6.4 out of 10 – not bad for 17th century Spanish princess, but not as much as that spectacular geometry deserved (yep, I’m going to keep saying it!)
At least I won’t have much competition in the ‘it’s already been made’ stakes if I decide to make a reproduction of it!
For this week’s rate the dress I’m going to present something with a lot of colour. We’ve had quite a few not-particularly-vivid garments in a row: time for something a little different.
This striking gown was sold at auction a while back. It’s very vivid. And vibrant.
While it is much more colourful than Maria Anna’s dress, it shares the same enthusiasm for crazy geometricisation and pattern arrangement. I clearly though the geometry and patterning on Maria Anna’s dress was divine, and while you may not have agreed with me, perhaps you will like the concept in another era.
Or perhaps not?
Rate the Dress on a scale of 1 to 10.
(and be sure to leave your comment on this post, not on the image, or I won’t see it to include in the final rating!)
