The Innocent Fair



The Palace of Fine Arts was constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. It was one of ten structures featured in the fair, which also included the exhibit palaces of Education, Liberal Arts, Manufactures, Varied Industries, Agriculture, Food Products, Transportation, Mines and Metallurgy and the Palace of Machinery. It is one of my favorite places to visit in San Francisco.

My outfit is inspired by Bernard Maybeck's architectural design. The Palace has beautiful arches, freezes, and columns. I was particularly influenced by the feminine dresses of the period, with lace and full skirts. The dress has been shortened for a more modern feel.
