: I do not understand why Princess Caroline
: wears these things from Karl Lagerfeld
The Rose Ball is celebrating Art Nouveau and the Wiener Secession this year. Princess Caroline's dress is an admittedly rather poor re-interpretation of a famous dress worn by Emilie Flöge, fashion designer and partner of Gustav Klimt. Except for the earrings her jewellery follows the photograph.
A reconstruction of this dress by the Institute of Fashion and Design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna is more appealing.
Flöge was the most prominent - if not the only influential - proponent of the so-called "Reformmode" in Vienna. Some of her dresses can be seen in Klimt's paintings.
