The Art Nouveau period meant profound changes in women’s clothing. The corset is abandoned in favor of a fluid silhouette, allowing freedom of movement. It is argued that a healthy and natural body is beautiful. This paradigm shift will bring profound changes to women’s clothing and will mean a new concept of beauty during the 20th century.
