Gerrit Thomas Rietveld was born in 1888. He was a Dutch designer, architect and painter. This show was not his works, but according to his style to design which seems like a three-dimensional realization of a Mondrian painting.

He infatuated with simple lines and colours. In 1925, Gerrit Thomas designed the Schroder House. This building reflect the stylized of De Stifi.

De Stifi has a great influence for modernism, such as, his simple geometric form and netural color (white, black, gray).

Her  dresses is mostly made of silks, velvet, satins, chiffons, beads-beads-beads, feathers and fringe. They are also above the ankle and have loose waist. Besides, breasts are down and as flat as possible. These dress are totally different in an era when American females still wore their dresses trailing to the ground.

In the colour scheme,  Coco chanel did not use glaring colours. She managed to convince the fashion conscious that beige was chic. in 1926, Chanel create a successful dress for women, “little black dress”. its almost universal popularity as a fashion basic.

“The designer also used colorful feminine printed chiffons in her daywear designs (1984.31a-c). Evening ensembles followed the long slim line for which the designer was known, but also incorporated tulle, lace, and decorative elements that soften and romanticize the overall look of the garment (1978.165.16a,b; C.I.46.4.7a-c).” (Jessa.K.2004)
