Graeco Roman

The Graeco-Roman era refers to a period of history in which Greek and Roman culture was fused and collectively influenced the art and architecture of many geographical regions. The fashion of the Graeco-Roman world was heavily inspired by architecture – elegant column dresses were a sartorial translation of the huge pillars and columns that were popular in terms of architecture. Graeco-Roman is often referenced as a trend in modern collections, referring to Greek silhouettes combined with Roman prints. For example, asymmetric toga dresses are made from heavier fabric and screen-printed to fuse the influence of the two regions. Mosaic prints, gilded belts and chiffon column dresses are other examples of Graeco-Roman fashion executed in a modern way.
