To sum up an outstanding characteristic of a dress jy calling it Greek, Empire, Direc- oirc or Victorian Is, I think, apt to create confusion ill most people's minds, besides being altogether too facile a description. It Is quite true that some models nay present features that arc evocative of a past mode, but these never are more than adaptations. From there to stating they are directly inspired by any one mode is going a little too far. There always are plenty of ideas to be culled from past fashions, ntid it often happens that some of these offer helpful suggestions for modern styles. The direct influence of the past is very faint, however, and the particular part of tho gown to which it is applied is so changed and modernized that it is ehce. Fashions Suited Times In order to be convinced of life loo-great facility of comparing contemporary fashiou.i with past modes, you have only to picture the dresses of -.the { seascns which in turn have bec-n labelled as of Greek, Diiecloirc or other periods, to see thnt all ttee styles are suited to the particular times during which they were created. Dining . the . yerio:! extending from 1MO to 1930, for example, it again would adorn our dresses?
