This dress/corset is from the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2014 RTW collection. The neckline reminds me of elegant gowns from the Victorian Era. The corset is the main focus of the modern piece. The lace up and fit is similar to those of the Victorian Era, except it is much looser and less constricting which makes it modern. 4/23/18 Olivia Taylor Fashion, Dresses, New Fashion, Fashion Models, Style, Cool Outfits, Aesthetic Clothes, Dress, Gorgeous Dresses

Late Victorian steam-molded corded corset at the Ghost Museum in Colorado. The corset is so stiff that it stands up on its own. Corsets were popular in the Victorian Era to give the image of a extremely small waist, and would support the garments the women wore.

I chose this dress because it reminded me of the full skirts women used to wear. It also has a high neckline, which shows modesty. The ruffles also reminded me of the big bell-like and full skirts women at this time were wearing. Brooke C 3/2/18 Givenchy, Vogue, The Dress, Giyim, Model, Mode Wanita, Beautiful Dresses

I pinned this dress because of the closures. This dress is closed with bows/ties and during the Victorian Era, zippers were not yet used. I feel the bow closure adds to the elegance of the dress, much like how it did on dresses in the Victorian Era. It looks much more classy than a metal zipper.

This is a modern day version of the crinoline/cage skirt. This picture is from the Spring 2013 Alexander McQueen line. He used the structure of the cage underneath the yellow frills and mesh, this is a much shorter version than what would be found in the Victorian Era and much more scandalous. He used the inspiration from that era to make a yellow sundress that flairs from the waist to just below the knee.  - Olivia 2/4/18 Alexander Mcqueen, Haute Couture, Mcqueen Fashion, Mcqueen, Moda, Alexander

This is a Victorian Style Crinoline Cage from 1860. Also known as the "cage skirt." It is made from flexible sprung steel rings suspended from fabric tape. These would be worn under skirts or dresses to help provide the big, poofy look. When a woman would sit down in this it folds up so they can comfortably sit.  - Olivia 2/4/18 Vintage Corset, Hoop Skirt, Crinoline, Civil War Dress, Costume Design, Vintage Underwear, Historical Clothing, Historical Costume
