Tea gown
House of Worth (French, 1858–1956), Designer: Jean-Philippe Worth (French, 1856–1926), Date: 1900–1901 Culture: French. Medium: silk.

This is a nice example of the teagown made by the House of Worth. This shows the luxurious lifestyle indicative of prominent women of the time. The teagown could be worn without a corset and was therefore a more comfortable form of dress in which one could greet guests at home. Teagowns were a particular vehicle for historicism and fantasy as evidences here with its deliberate interpretation of the 18th-century robe and petticoat form. | THE MET
