Gala dress, Morin-Blossier, Paris, 1906 or 1907. Machine- and hand-sewn gullaméstoff (I couldn’t find a translation of this word), covered with silk tulle embroidered with metallic thread.

Gold! The 70s were the time of disco and gold reigned supreme as the textile to wear to party. Other metallics were popular too. This dress would definitely be seen at Studio 54 for its color to shine under the lights, and its movability to dance in. I would do anything to travel back in time and make my way inside Studio 54.
