Royal Fashion XVIII -XIX

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

I've always been impressed by fashion of 18/19 century,  especially in France and England. Fashion was very changeable. Victorian era, Rococo or how it calls "The Era of Crinoline", Late Victorian style and other. At that time were some fashion magazines  which described the fashionable dresses. Of course such outfits could afford only very rich ladies.
 I think this is one of the most beautiful, delicate and feminine fashionable heritage! :)
