A pair of Montreal designers' work has now been viewed over 41 million times.

Taylor Swift dons a Victorian throwback black gown in her latest music video, 'Fortnight', designed by UNTTLD duo Simon Belanger and Jose Manuel Saint-Jacques. The black-and-white moody video was released on April 20 and features Post Malone.

The dress has been described as a Victorian mourning dress, which was a popular style during Queen Victoria's reign after the monarch began wearing them following the death of her husband, Prince Albert, in 1861.
