Baroque Style

Hi There! This is Bibian! 

Today I wanted to talk about the splendid trend of wearing baroque patterns. Because since I started interesting in fashion I’ve always been amazed by this kind of prints. I think it is beautiful the way the designers use this artistic style to capture their creativity and make it into something beautiful. Think gilded details, rich velvets and Renaissance-inspired prints. 

The use of exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur leaves me impacted. 

I’ve always been amazed by the usage of this technique in antique sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, and music, but now that designers like Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta and Donatella Versace employ this molds in to a trend-setter unique style, I am even more astonished

The opulence and pulchritude of this dressing is something that can’t be unnoticed. 

History fact: This striking style started around 1600 in Rome, Italy and spread to most of Europe.

Kind regards,
