愛上美好年代者，黎巴嫩設計師Zuhair Murad在高訂方面亦有從19世紀末汲取靈感，2006秋冬融合了舞台劇芝加哥和19世紀末到1900年代初期的服裝特色，同時呼應著設計師向來強調高訂華麗質感，金蔥綠銀、施華洛世奇水晶綴飾，貼近早期上流名媛出席社交場合形象。Alexander McQueen雖本著英倫精神，多數援用維多利亞時期或都鐸文化背景，但別忘了法國人尊稱的美好年代，恰好和英國的維多利亞時代末期時間重疊，而已故設計師到現任的Sarah Burton依然或多或少對纖腰體態有所鍾情，從1990年代已降到最近的2012早秋或2013秋冬，馬甲胸衣與New Look花苞剪裁，hold住細腰翹臀輪廓。儘管現代女人講究自由，不愛被包得緊繃像綁肉粽式的穿衣style，但能強調腰線完美似乎永不嫌麻煩，也或許19世紀初的衣裝現在看來，有些笨拙，若抽取箇中優點，依然能激發無限的靈感。««
