Forever Pleats

Prada & Chloe

By making a review of the fashion history, we can easily remember and admire the first dress with pleats, in the begining of the 20th century. It was the “Delphos Dress” and it was Mariano Fortuni’s creation.  At that period of time, this dress was something like a big revolution at the fashion area. Due to his unique creation and technique we are able today, and especially this summer, to enjoy a huge variety of pleats and transparencies, at the majority of the designers collection. Pastel colours, airy materials and hundreds of pleats, impress and give a romantic sense. Designers such as Prada, Dior, Roberto Cavalli, Aquilano Rimondi and Chloe, dared and finally succeed to get the best feedbacks,  for their choice to use pleats at their SS 2012 collections.
