Evening dress, Attributed to Mrs. Dunstan (American)
Designer: Attributed to Jacques Doucet (French, Paris 1853–1929 Paris) Date: 1908–10 Culture: American Medium: silk, pearl.

This dress is of particular interest, as it bears the label of a New York dressmaker, Mrs. Dunstan. However, the complex construction and the variety of fabrics used are very consistent with French-made garments and could possibly attribute this dress to the famous French couturier Jacques Doucet. A rarity, this dress is in mint condition and marks the period of transition when mainstream fashion was moving from the monobosom shape to the more upright empire line. | THE MET
