Gowns from the Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation, circa 1910-15

The Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation, founded and directed by designer, historian, and author Alexandre Vassiliev, is certainly the most important and comprehensive private collection of historic fashion and fashion accessories in the world. It comprises over fifty thousand articles, dating from the eighteenth century to the present day, from which the foundation selects and organizes thematic exhibitions that have appeared internationally. These eight gowns are just a tiny glimpse through a narrow window into this beautiful, important, and truly awe-inspiring collection.
