As a symbol of a great day, the wedding dress occupies a special place in the feminine wardrobe. For a long time she represented a important moment in a woman’s life: the creation of her new home and her change of social status.Most often the wedding dress followed the bourgeois fashion, reflecting the aesthetic and moral preferences of her time. Thus its shape evolvesover the decades, from the basket dress of the eighteenth century worn over hoops, the Regency’s style, the romantic fashion and the forms structured by the crinolines and the bustles. Similarly, just after the First World War, the wedding dress is modernized with a low waist and a shortened hem. This exhibition traces the evolution of this unique dress, from the end of the 17th century to the 1930s, thus showing the evolution of styles and adornments. It presents both reconstituted costumes for the oldest periods and authentic dresses from 1870, as well as accessories.This exhibition was presented at the castke of Champs-sur-Marne (CMN).
