About The Blog

I started this blog back in 2010 as an outlet to share my passion for fashion history, to provide a resource for research, and to educate and entertain any type of reader who may wander by. Much of my own research is focused on the 18th century, and subsequently many of my posts focus on that period, but I do strive to give a broad range of information on all times throughout history.

I am interested in fashion as a record of the human experience. Dress and appearance are incredibly personal aspects of our lives, and connect people from all times and places. I find it a fascinating way to study the broader experience of the past and humanity itself. As Louis XIV once said, fashion is "the mirror of history".
