Early Renaissance epoch is one of the most marvelous and amazing history periods. The beginning of art and culture influenced the fashion of the period greatly.
This dress of the early Renaissance combines naivete and elegance of the silhouette with the complexity and richness of trimming and details.
This dress typical for the second half of the fifteenth century which was known as "gamurra" and referred to as the so called Florentine fashion period. Dresses were usually worn over the corset and chemise, which are not included but are available in our store.
The dress is made of natural cotton velvet (one of the limited fabric versions has flocked design), the skirt has 8 or 10 gussets depending on the customer's size. The dress requires 13-16 yards of fabric and the length of the skirt hem exceeds 11 yards. It is decorated with trim with pomegranate ornament exclusively designed and manufactured for this project. Bodice and sleeves are embroidered with the artificial pearls and silvery lacet. Sleeves are attached to the dress with the help of three velvet laces and can be fastened with buttons on the wrists. Bodice of the dress has cut-outs where chemise can be seen. The dress is laced at the front. Bodice and sleeves have viscose lining.
