Mariano Fortuny Black Gauze Stencilled Short Coat

About

Fortuny translated the caftan as a loose fitting outer garment, usually made out of silk velvet crepe or gauze the fitted back and open front allowed for elaborate stenciled decoration and venetian bead trim .Mariano Fortuny created his stenciled silk gauze wraps to add ornamentation to the plain pleated Delphos gowns.

This short length silk gauze wrap, based on antique ethnic caftan styles, is cut square with openings for the arms. The shoulders are trimmed with black white and red decorated Venetian glass beads, which give the caftan the necessary weight to hang properly. A stenciled Fortuny garment has minimal cuts so that the garment can serve as a canvas for the art work.

The hand stenciling is done with real gold metallic pigments aged to a mellow, burnished color. Fortuny built his stenciled pieces layer upon layer, until he achieved the effect of an old
brocade. The stenciled pattern is Persian and trees.
