Fashion History and Costume History Eras, Victorians to Haute Couture.


About Us is based in the United Kingdom and is a sister site of . Fashion-era looks at women's costume and fashion history and analyses the mood of an era. Changes in technology, leisure, work, cultural and moral values, homelife and politics have all contributed to lifestyle trends which influence the clothes women in particular choose to wear. These are the changes that make any era of society special in relation to the study of the costume of a period.

New eras always herald new fashions. New fashions are invariably old fashions with a fresh twist, be it a new fabric or a new way of wearing or accessorizing an outfit. We look at fashion and accessories, beauty, makeup, hair and body adornment, jewellery and materials, and other innovations which highlight the new trends and define the era in which we live.

We suggest British museums to visit, paintings to view and contemporary books to read. If you teach we provide some costume silhouettes and outlines for you to download and duplicate for school use in history and craft lessons. We give you tutorial tips on making fashion workboards or storyboards for college interviews. We encourage you to experiment and try fashion sketching and send in your sketches to display in the fashion galleries.
