Style Icons: Female »Loie Fuller

Amazing Dancer

I don’t always know how to interpret dance but when I saw this 1896 film of Loie Fuller and her Danse Serpentine, I was mesmerized, in love and fascinated… which is, after all what great art should do – evoke emotion even in those unversed in the medium.

Loie Fuller was originally from Chicago but as an inventive pioneer in dance she traveled the world and spawned many gorgeous French posters for her performances in the country which she decided to call home.

Not only a dancer who utilized incredible costumes, Fuller was also a lighting designer and holds patents in the field.
