But how did this particular form of fashion get that name? Lilly did some research and, no matter if it is 100% right or wrong, she came up with an acceptable answer.

In typical Lilly manner, though, this answer is not going to be short. She gave it a lot of thought while choosing her perfect gown out of the most stunning collection of cocktail dresses Brisbane wide. And she will let you have the full benefit of her conclusions.

Where did the term “cocktail” come from anyway? Good old Wikipedia has the answer: any beverage with two or more ingredients, of which at least one of them contains alcohol. It also says that the term originated in the very early 19th century USA (of all places). And the first bartenders’ guide including cocktail recipes was published in 1862.

Since cocktails can be so delicious, the race was on to make more and more new kinds of cocktails, mixed drinks, fruit cocktails, shrimp cocktails, leading to cocktail parties…but I digress. What gives us the occasion to be on the lookout for cocktail dresses Brisbane made?

The name alone makes it clear that they are the preferred form of attire at cocktail parties, where cocktails are served, or at cocktail hour, which the Merriam-Webster online dictionary tells us is “the hour when cocktails are customarily served usually just before dinner or between four and six in the afternoon”. Thank goodness it is acceptable to wear our gorgeous cocktail dresses Brisbane wide at plenty of other occasions nowadays. Was this always the case?

Elyssa da Cruz’ essay on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s website tells us some more. In the early 19th century, women became “more visible in the social sphere”. People had more time and money to meet up, and drinks were served. The fashionable elite dressed accordingly. Over the years, fashions changed and the ladies’ hemlines rose (and probably fell again and rose again…). Christian Dior is cited as the first to name the gowns worn to such occasions “cocktail” dresses in the late 1940s, and the name stuck.

Today anything and everything is allowed. So ladies: show us your gorgeous legs and killer shoes! Wear one of Freddie met Lilly’s spectacular cocktail dresses Brisbane made to your glamorous occasions around the world!
