And of course, Vera Wang is also my dream wedding dress. Background A. History In 1990, Vera Wang opened her first bridal house on Madison Avenue in New York, designing bridal wear and evening gowns.
History of the Power Suit 1920s Chanel liberates women So, how did it all start? We owe a lot of it to that classy French lady Coco Chanel. She was the one who freed women from those horribly restrictive corsets and gave us some room to actually move and breathe! According to the Emerald Street, the original power suit did not involve polyester and shoulder pads, but rather a knitted wool cardigan paired with a matching skirt. This came to be known as the Chanel suit.
Woman indulged themselves in fur and silk, if they were wealthy enough. These types of clothing were reserved for the evening, to be worn with elbow length gloves, and daywear included such things as dresses with bow tie collared shirts with a matching jacket (Thomas). Fitness and activities became more popular in the 1930s. Woman increasingly sunbathed to have a golden glow about their skin (Thomas). Swimsuits were designed to be lower
‘MENKAURE AND A QUEEN’ is wearing a hat like the other general pharaohs wear. This hair style represents his status and ANAVYSOS KOUROS’s hair style looks like dreadlocks.

Secondly, we have Sugar, she is an orphan with her own style. She is wearing a Victorian look alike dress which is black and has an open flurry collar with a white long sleeved shirt that comes out from under the long black sleeves. The shoulders have a padded effect, the skirt is a big puffy skirt, with lots of white layers under the black skirt to make the dress pop out. She is wearing skin coloured tights and black low heel shoes. She has a big black bow on top of her head and has a tight but heavy bun.
Minoan women wore skirts that flared out from the waist in a bell shape, with many decorations attached to the cloth. Later designs were made from strips of fabric, sewn in ways that created rows of ruffles from waist to ankle. Women also wore close-fitting blouses that were cut low in the front to expose the breasts. A tiny waist was prized, and both men and women wore tight belts made of metal, which held their waists in.

e women before World War 1 took on an extremely different role than women of the twenties. This, in turn, made them look much different. Bouffant hairstyles, where the hair is piled high up on the head were replaced with the short bobs. In 1923 the waistline normally sitting around the natural waist moved down to the hips. The flapper dress was lose and straight with a waistline at the hips.
Ellen Kingsbury ANTIGONE Costume Image Assignment 9/30/12 THAR 4240 1) Antigone http://mkatz.web.wesleyan.edu/cciv110x/antigone/cciv110.Antigone.html This depiction of Antigone upon the vase would be most accurate to what I think Antigone would actually look like. She is wearing what appears to be a long and elaborate ionic chiton with a lot of drapery. It seems somewhat tied near the mid calf region, but all in all is a very draped and baggy kind of feel. I feel this attire would suit Antigone for several reasons. First, she is not as beautiful as her sister Ismene, and yet there is a sense of elegance about this look.
In the Renaissance upper class women were known for wearing five pieces of clothing which were skirt, underskirt, bodice, underbodice, or vest, hoop and collar. And then lower class women were known for wearing three pieces of clothing which were underskirt, bodice, and robe. This helped maintain Renaissance social structures since the lower classes didn’t wear the same fashion as the upper class. Upper class men were known for wearing doublet, jerkin, and hose, cloak, hat, long shirt, drawers, and heavily padded peascod doublet. Lower class men were known for wearing joined hose, codpiece, or straight, loose trousers falling to mid-calf, with a loose coat over their shirt hanging to mid-thigh, and belted with a bit of cord.
