* Irene Castle Dress Black silk crepe, ecru lace, embroidery Circa 1923, USA The dancer Irene Castle was known for her romantic and modern style. She parlayed her status as a fashion icon into a successful collaboration with Corticelli Silks, designing and promoting clothes based on her personal taste. This dress combines the functional chic of a little black dress with the charm of a naively rendered floral bouquet.
