    Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo (11 May 1871–3 May 1949) was a Spanish artist and fashion designer, most well-known for his Delphos and Peplos dresses, which were Grecian style robes constructed from his unique patented finely pleated silk. Fortuny also patented a way of stencilling on velvet, creating his own dyes and printing blocks.
