Which fashion could characterize our epoch?
Our readers are familiar with the poll “Which fashion could characterize our epoch?” that we have conducted recently. Above they will find some fashionable things selected by certain characters, to whom we addressed this question: 1) the straight skirt that had the most votes and which was offered by Madame Armande de Polignac-Chabannes, Madame Claude Lorrey, and Messieurs Cappiello and La Gándara; 2) the Persian dress mentioned by Countess Lucien Murat, Messieurs Sébastien-Charles Leconte and Jules Bois; 3) the dress with narrowing bottom chosen by Baroness Aimery de Pierrebourg, Madame Madeleine Lemaire, and Monsieur André Fouquières; 4) the pants-skirt nominated by Madame Rachilde; 5) women’s suit marked by Mister Léon Bakst; 6) today’s outfit preferred by Mademoiselle Gladys Maxhance. On page 3 in the Echo section our readers will be able to participate in the poll.
