Victorian


The Victorian period, named after Britain's Queen Victoria, a long lived and highly influential monarch in an era when women had little power or opportunity.


Stylish garments were a sign of respectability in tht period. The copious amounts of fabric used in the creation of Victorian skirts usually meant that most women owned few outfits. Detachable collars and cuffs enabled a woman to change the look of a garment for a bit of variety. Evening wear exposed the shoulders and neckline and corsets lost their shoulder straps. Sleeves of ball gowns were usually short.

Designs inspired by Victorian period which was all about Tight corsets, gigantic hoop-skirts, and outrageous bustles.
