The Gallery of Fashion, anonymous, 1794

etching, h 282mm × w 225mm More details

In 1794 The Gallery of Fashion first appeared in England. Clearly inspired by the French Gallerie des Modes, the series was intended, according to the publisher, to demonstrate the superiority of English taste. English fashions were more decorous, and sometimes exceptionally voluminous. The three ostrich plumes in the young ladies’ turbans were required for introductions at court, being an emblem of the Prince of Wales.
