Dressing for a King. In 1936, this dress was worn by a guest attending the coronation of King George Vl. Protocol stipulated that the dress must have a detachable train and there must be a pattern somewhere on the woman’s ensemble that portrayed the royal coat of arms, the Fleur de Lys. Madeleine Vionnet is attributed as the dress’ maker. It is cut on the bias as was the fashion in the 30s, is made of silk jersey, and has a trained that is attached by hooks discreetly placed on the shoulders.
