13th March 2009

All that glitters is not gold...

Here are some photographs I took of Victorian Ladies Jackets I was shown last week. They were beautiful on the outside and even more so when i looked at the construction and detail on the inside. My tutor showed me them after I'd shown her some of my other Victorian research. When you look more and more at them you notice new areas of detail that adds to how amazing the jackets are...I want to take details from areas like the whale boning and the fabrics and apply them to my designs. They are also an example of how different a womans silhuette would have been during the Victorian era because the jackets were so tiny I thought they were for children...yes slightly jealous!!!
