in Fashion History
Did you know that some Victorian ladies were so eager to have that hour glass shape they suffered from broken ribs from having their corsets laced up too tight ? Women today do not need to go to such drastic lengths to be fashionable. Although some items of clothing seen on the catwalks of fashion shows may appear bizarre, the dresses and skirts that reach the shops are much more acceptable and desirable. Today’s fashions are often influenced by those worn by actors and actresses in modern films. Our holidays abroad give us access to items of local clothing, colourful and practical, that can be worn here in the UK. And you can now view them and order them online.
