Fortuny Dress Rolled Up

 

The dress was stored by rolling length-wise, twisting tightly into a ball, and placing it in an oval miniature hat box, thus preserving the pleats and keeping the shape.

Purchased in Paris in 1936, the dress was worn with a diamond necklace and silver shoes to the Metropolitan Opera.
