Fortuny, Marioano 1871-1949 was a textile and dress designer.
Born Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo in Granada, Spain. Fortuny studied painting and drawing in Spain before spending time in France and Germany. In those locations he learned about chemistry and dyes. In 1889 he settled in Venice, doing artwork such as photographs, painting and sculpting. He was fascinated by the effects of diffused light, he created stage sets for the opera and theater. Fortuny began to print textiles inspired by velvets and brocades of the Italian 15th and 16th centuries. He began making pleated gowns and cloaks which he dyed with vegetable dyes. Although they were made them resemble rich velvets. Between 1901 and 1934 he registered more than twenty inventions in Paris for stage lighting systems and textile printing processes. This knocked him up to a superstar status. His “Knossos” scarf of 1906 was inspired by Cycladic art. It was a rectangular silk veil which could be used in a number of ways, tied around the body or worn as a decoration with the ‘Delphos’ gown, a cylindrically shaped, loose-fitting silk satin garment which had a rich color created by a special pleating process which Fortuny patented in 1909. Isadora Duncan was one of his most famous clients. After his death, the Fortuny process was bought by Countess Gozzi, who, as Elsie McNeill, had earlier helped Fortuny to market his furnishing fabric in the USA. A mixture of an artist and couturier, Fortuny had an enlightened view of dress design. This earned him one of the historical crowns of fashion.
