Madame Olympe evening gown, c. 1866

This incredible 1866 dinner/reception dress was designed by Madame Olympe in New Orleans. It definitely has a unique New Orleans flavor to i.

This black silk faille two-piece dress was worn by an unknown woman in approximately 1866. Though it appears extremely formal and elegant to our contemporary eyes, it would have been worn to a dinner or reception, rather than the most formal of evening balls.

Perhaps most compelling is the multicolored silk fringe which frames the bodice and cuffs while echoing the gold brocade swags and floral sprays along the hem. the dress was created by Madame Olympe, of 154 Canal Street in New Orleans.

I just want to put it on, walk around a little bit and have my picture taken....pleasssssse.
