Wow, if I'd not read the topic, I might have glanced at this dress and thought it Native American at first! Love the gold color.

I can definitely see what you're talking about! Though Egyptomania was particularly popular around 1923, there was definitely a generalized interest in non-western cultures during this period. Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Eastern European decorative traditions were all mined for their motifs, colors, etc. Definitely an interesting time for fashion!
