Portrait of the Mlles. Mollien by Rouget, Eliza Ridgely", portrait by Thomas Sully, Edward Hudson by Thomas Sully, I call a caricature "semi-satirical" if it depicts a situation that was probably just a little more extreme than what would have been ordinarily encountered, but is still somewhat realistic; and "satirical" if it is over-exaggerated or grotesque.
For other Regency caricatures not primarily on women's fashions , see the general Regency images page. Some contemporary comparisons of Regency fashions with those of other periods: Woodward, February 8th See also a scan of a black-and-white reproduction of a hand-colored version of this same print: Text on the left: Esquire" Text on the right: A Lady's full dress of Bombazeen" and "The year Note that "undress" didn't mean anything naughty -- you can read a definition of it at Cathy's Regency fashion pages.
In pursuing his goal of satirizing certain features of contemporary fashions, the caricaturist did not really draw a fair comparison between the styles of and , since a young Regency fashionable is juxtaposed here to a sedate middle-aged pre-Regency lady perhaps in mourning , and such features of midth century dress as tight stiff stays with extremely low necklines were not included also, the "" costume actually seems to be somewhat of a pastiche with 17th century styles.
Women's fashions of the Regency weren't always "sensible", but their excesses do seem to be more in accord overall with the spirit of the 20th century than the fashion excesses of most other periods between the 16th century and World War I which tended to go in for such things as huge hoopskirts and tight corsets A confrontation between a couple wearing formal French court dress of ca.
A satirical drawing which makes fun of the perceived excesses of Classical-influenced fashions, when the style was new in England -- one can see the outlines of the legs, how shocking! Louis Boilly, "Point de Convention" -- Semi-satirical painting depicting extreme clothing styles worn by young French fashionables "incroyables" and "merveilleuses" , ca. Imagine a wind blowing from the right; its effects on the women's clothing would seem funny to a generation that had been accustomed to skirts stiffened with more layers of petticoats.
A fashion prediction of Vide Fashionable Modesty ", a March 12th caricature by Gillray: The caricature is said to refer to Lady Georgiana Gordon; the title, as well as the servant lecherously peering down while trimming the candle, are allusions to the Lady Godiva legend. This scan courtesy Bob Whitworth of PrintsGeorge.
A huge scan of the "Parisian Ladies in their Full Winter Dress for " Cruikshank caricature showing more detail is also available. French satire on the poke bonnet "invisible" ; No. Satire on the beaked bonnet by "Cham" Amédée de Noé ; probably drawn in the 's, but apparently depicting the fashions of the early 's: The man is proceeding to desperate measures to try to get a glimpse of the lady's face as he is conversing with her.
Can the caption supplied by James Laver to this satire be correct? Is it possible that the French could portray themselves as less stylish than the English?? What is clear is that the English couple is visiting France, after Napoleon's exile to Elba, and the French are pointing and laughing at them, and this caricature makes fun of the French.
Not overtly satirical, but perhaps involving some maliciousness on the part of the artist: This piece is somewhat strange even considering that French styles were sometimes more extreme than English , in that it shows an extremely low cut gown which would have been considered most appropriate as formal indoor eveningwear for women old enough to attend grown-up social events as being worn by a 14 or year old girl, in a situation which calls instead for slightly informal wear appropriate to daytime outdoors in the country as is worn by two of the three males, and in fact by all three, when the age of the oldest is considered -- not to mention the fact that the long formal train of her white gown is right in the dirt!
The companion piece showing Madame Oberkampf with other children is even more peculiar not to say pathetic , giving the impression that the Oberkampfs were vulgar pushing upstarts who didn't know where to draw the line when imitating the dashing new female fashions of the high-society circles to which they did not belong.
Mediocre-quality scan -- I include this pretty much as an oddity Relevant to Regency women's clothing styles, but not direct illustrations or caricatures of them.
Illustration for "Zonë" taken from Autenrieth's Homeric Dictionary: Large image showing four ladies; pictures taken from J. A somewhat Regency-looking Greek statuette, ca. Ladies at their instrument: Up until about , women's styles as depicted in fashion-plates etc.
And early 's styles continued the trend of the second half of the 's in having a slightly conical silhouette, with several layers of petticoats being worn as opposed to the more clinging and free-flowing earlier styles -- and also in having decoration sometimes large and ornate applied at or near the hem of the dress.
But up to or so, women's fashions still had no extravagantly disabling basic structural features, and seemed to be mainly following in the tradition of the preceding 25 years. However, by , the high fashions visible in fashion plates had undergone a major change, and had definitively repudiated the legacy of late 's to early 's styles, preparing the way for the main fashion features of the next ten to fifteen years large sleeves, somewhat strict corseting of the natural waist, full skirts, large-circumference hats, and visual emphasis on wide sloping shoulders.
Here are other illustrations of women's styles at the beginning of the transition away from broadly "Regency" styles, ca.
Depiction of an early 's young lady hurrying through a door: Silk and cotton were woven into various designs and motifs, each region developing its distinct style and technique. Famous among these weaving styles were the Jamdani , Kasika vastra of Varanasi , butidar and the Ilkal saree. The Mughals played a vital role in the enhancement of the art, and the paisley and Latifa Buti are fine examples of Mughal influence .
Dyeing of clothes in ancient India was practised as an art form. Five primary colours Suddha-varnas were identified and complex colours Misra — varnas were categorised by their many hues. Sensitivity was shown to the most subtlest of shades; the ancient treatise, Vishnudharmottara states five tones of white, namely Ivory , Jasmine , August moon, August clouds after the rain and the conch shell. Integral to the history of Indian clothing is the Kashmiri shawl.
Kashmiri shawl varieties include the Shahtoosh , popularly known as the 'ring shawl' and the pashmina wool shawls, historically called pashm. Textiles of wool finds mention as long back as the Vedic times in association with Kashmir; the Rig Veda refers to the Valley of Sindh as being abundant in sheep, [ citation needed ] [b] and the god Pushan has been addressed as the 'weaver of garments',  which evolved into the term pashm for the wool of the area.
Woolen shawls have been mentioned in Afghan texts of the 3rd century BC, but reference to the Kashmir work is done in the 16th century AD. The sultan of Kashmir, Zain-ul-Abidin is generally credited with the founding of the industry. The Periplus of the Erythraean Sea mentions mallow cloth, muslins and coarse cottons. Trade with the Arabs who were middlemen in the spice trade between India and Europe brought Indian textiles into Europe, where it was favored by royalty in the 17th—18th century.
To counter this problem, bullion was sent to India to trade for the textiles, a major portion of which were subsequently traded for spices in other trade posts, which then were traded along with the remaining textiles in London.
Printed Indian calicos , chintz , muslins and patterned silk flooded the English market and in time the designs were copied onto imitation prints by English textile manufacturers, reducing the dependence on India.
The British rule in India and the subsequent oppression following the Bengal Partition sparked a nationwide Swadeshi movement. One of the integral aims of the movement was to attain self-sufficiency, and to promote Indian goods while boycotting British goods in the market.
Khadi and its products were encouraged by the nationalist leaders over British goods, while also being seen as a means to empower the rural artisans. In India, women's clothing varies widely and is closely associated with the local culture , religion and climate. Traditional Indian clothing for women in the north and east are saris worn with choli tops; a long skirt called a lehenga or pavada worn with choli and a dupatta scarf to create an ensemble called a gagra choli ; or salwar kameez suits, while many south Indian women traditionally wear sari and children wear pattu langa.
Mumbai , formerly known as Bombay, is one of India's fashion capitals. Women wear a sari, a long sheet of colourful cloth, draped over a simple or fancy blouse. Little girls wear a pavada. Both are often patterned. Bindi is a part of women's make-up. Other clothing includes the churidar , gamucha , kurti and kurta , and sherwani. The traditional style of clothing in India varies with male or female distinctions.
This is still followed in the rural areas, though is changing in the urban areas. A saree or sari   is a female garment in the Indian subcontinent. These are usually more dressy with a lot of embellishments such as mirrors or embroidery and may be worn on special occasions. Women in the armed forces, when wearing a sari uniform, don a half-sleeve shirt tucked in at the waist. Teenage girls wear half-sarees, a three piece set consisting of a langa, a choli and a stole wrapped over it like a saree.
Women usually wear full sarees. Indian wedding saris are typically red or pink, a tradition that goes back to India's pre-modern history. Saris are usually known with different names in different places. In Kerala , white saris with golden border, are known as kavanis and are worn on special occasions.
A simple white sari, worn as a daily wear, is called a mundu. Saris are called pudavai in Tamil Nadu. In Karnataka , saris are called Seere. Mundum Neriyathum is the oldest remnant of the ancient form of the saree which covered only the lower part of the body, a traditional dress of women in Kerala, South India.
It is worn by women of all ages. The bottom portion, draped from the waist downwards is called the Mekhela Assamese: It is in the form of a sarong—very wide cylinder of cloth—that is folded into pleats to fit around the waist and tucked in. The folds are to the right, as opposed to the pleats in the Nivi style of the saree, which are folded to the left. Strings are never used to tie the mekhela around the waist, though an underskirt with a string is often used.
The top portion of the three-piece dress, called the Sador Assamese: The Sador is tucked in triangular folds. A fitted blouse is worn to cover the breasts.
The third piece is called a Riha , which is worn under the Sador. It is narrow in width. This traditional dress of the Assamese women are very famous for their exclusive patterns on the body and the border.
Women wear them during important religious and ceremonious occasions of marriage. Riha is worn exactly like a Sador and is used as Orni. Salwar is a generic description of the lower garment incorporating the Punjabi salwar, Sindhi suthan, Dogri pajamma also called suthan and the Kashmiri suthan. The salwar kameez is the traditional wear of women in Punjab , Haryana and Himachal Pradesh and is called the Punjabi suit which is most common in the northwestern part of India Punjab region.
The Punjabi suit also includes the "churidaar" and "kurta" ensemble which is also popular in Southern India where it is known as the "churidaar". The salwar kameez has become the most popular dress for females.
It consists of loose trousers the salwar narrow at the ankles, topped by a tunic top the kameez. The material for the dupatta usually depends upon that of the suit, and is generally of cotton, georgette , silk, chiffon among others.
Many actresses wear the salwar kameez in Bollywood movies. The suthan, similar to the salwar is common in Sindh where it is worn with the cholo  and Kashmir where it is worn with the Phiran. The patiala salwar is an exaggeratedly wide version of the salwar, its loose pleats stitched together at the bottom.
Churidaar is a variation on the salwar, loose above the knees and tightly fitted to the calf below. While the salwar is baggy and caught in at the ankle, the churidar fits below the knees with horizontal gathers near the ankles. The anarkali suit is made up of a long, frock-style top and features a slim fitted bottom.
The anarkali is an extremely desirable style that is adorned by women located in Northern India, Pakistan and The Middle East. The anarkali suit varies in many different lengths and embroideries including floor length anarkali styles. Many women will also opt for heavier embroidered anarkali suits on wedding functions and events. Indian women wear anarkali suits on various other occasions as well such as traditional festivals, casual lunch, anniversary celebrations etc. The kameez of the anarkali can be sleevelesss or with sleeves ranging from cap- to wrist-length.
It is a combination of lehenga , a tight choli and an odhani. A lehenga is a form of a long skirt which is pleated. It is usually embroidered or has a thick border at the bottom.
A choli is a blouse shell garment, which is cut to fit to the body and has short sleeves and a low neck. Different styles of ghagra cholis are worn by the women, ranging from a simple cotton lehenga choli as a daily wear, a traditional ghagra with mirrors embellished usually worn during navratri for the garba dance or a fully embroidered lehenga worn during marriage ceremonies by the bride.
Popular among unmarried women other than salwar kameez are Gagra choli and Langa voni. Pattu Pavadai or Langa davani is a traditional dress in south India and Rajasthan, usually worn by teenage and small girls. The pavada is a cone-shaped skirt, usually of silk, that hangs down from the waist to the toes. This is the store that I think most people know about.
