Fashion in the Time of Jane Austen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Fashion in the Time of Jane Austen free pdf The broader Regency period 1795 to 1820, stands alone as an incredible moment in fashion history, unlike anything that went before it. For the first time, England became a fashion influence, especially for menswear, and became the toast of Paris, as court dress became secondary to the season-by-season flux of fashion as we know it today. Sarah Jane Downing explores the fashion revolution and the innovation that inspired a flood of fashions taking influence from far afield. It was an era of contradiction immortalised by Jane Austen, who adeptly used the new-found diversity of fashion to enliven her characters: Wickham's military splendour- Mr Darcy's understated elegance- and Miss Tilney's romantic fixation with white muslin.
