Exquisite Fortuny Delphos dress

One for my lust list. I feel this would have to be the most classic dress of all time. Inspired by ancient Greek clothing, Mariano Fortuny used a method of pleating silk at his factory in Venice which was patented in 1909 and to this day has never been able to be copied. Most of the dresses that have survived are in museums but we can still buy one from some top-end vintage clothing websites like To see more of these amazing dresses go to the most interesting Fortuny website
