When did floral print appear?
This pattern has a thousand-year history: the ancient Persians used daisies and daisies, in ancient Egypt clothes were decorated with lotuses, the ancient Greeks applied a decorative floral pattern to the fabric, but all these ornaments were purely decorative.
Only in China and Japan did the plant world acquire its own special meaning: bamboo stalks personified stamina and wisdom, wild plum — friendship, peony flowers — nobility and wealth, a flower and a butterfly — love. The colored silk produced in China and Japan influenced European artists and European art in general, giving rise to the fashion for Orientalism.
The floral print gained great popularity in the 18th century thanks to the Rococo era, when dresses made of fine silk came into fashion, requiring elegant designs. In the 20s of the 20th century, society strove for femininity, and floral colors came back into fashion. In 1966, the Flora pattern of the Gucci brand appeared, created especially for Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco. In the 1960s, artistic catchy ornaments were fashionable, but the peak of the popularity of the floral pattern happened in the 1970s. Then calm vegetable and Japanese colors became fashionable.
