Amazing Work by History of Costume Students
We visited lecturer Valentine’s classroom to check out student presentations in History of Costume I. Students were tasked with designing a doll outfit from a time period assigned to them and then presenting it to the class. We were truly impressed by the results!
In History of Costume, students are given an overview of how clothing has changed throughout the major historical eras. They are also taught to recognise the key details of silhouettes, fabrics, and accessories that are specific to each era.
We give you the peak of the 18th century period, which influenced not only fashion but also art, architecture, and interior design.
In opposition to the Louis XIV style which is more formal and geometric, the Rococo style emerged in France in the 1730s. Then it expanded to other regions of Europe, including northern Italy, Austria, southern Germany, Central Europe, and Russia.
The basis of Rococo fashion was extravagance, grace, refinement, and embellishment. The true Rococo style of dress for women in this century was rich and elegant. These styles reached the upper class’s salons and cafés in addition to the royal court. The Rococo style brings to people who wear it an exuberant, humorous, and attractive style of decorating and design.
Check out the students’ work from this project, which is now on display at the library.
