Hello
I’ve just posted on my “interpreting corset pics” blog an article on DIY Victorian posture and deportment. If you live in the 21 century and want to have Victorian posture here are some simple DIY exercises that will help you. You need something more than a corset to get Victorian posture! Beware some techniques are a bit painful!

Please add your comments on my Interpreting Corset Pictures group.

More on corsets and posture in a later post.
Love to you all.....Mintie

Something to think about on International Women’s Day

another one mainly because it's gorgeous. But in this case, it's also clever: it looks like a scarf wrapped (sexily!) around the woman, but it's actually just embroidery. Also it's by one of our favorite fashion houses, Callot Soeurs (Callot Sisters)

There is a lot of cloth of gold on our tours, as in Gainsborough's portrait of Grace Dalrymple Elliott, a courtesan patronized by the great and wealthy, including the Prince of Wales (later George IV) and the Duc d'Orléans. I'll put her in comments.

This outfit by Poiret would look perfectly natural at a dinner party today. How far out it must have looked when it was created, in 1913!

The Victoria & Albert Museum, London has the great good fortune to hold this ensemble in its archives. It is an early iteration of the emergence of bifurcated evening wear.
Created by Paul Poiret who was, at the time, one of the most forward thinking of couturiers. This ensemble is made of silk satin with a lining of pink silk chiffon. The trousers are joined in the center and there are deep slits on the sides where the legs emerge. The cloak is a variation of one of his favorite ideas, the cocoon coat.
This ensemble was made for Emilie Grigsby, who must have been not only affluent but fearlessly stylish since such a costume would have raised more than a few eyebrows. It is likely, though that it was meant for entertaining at home, rather than evenings out.
Along with it’s being avant-garde, it is every bit as elegantly stylish now as it was in 1913 when it was created.

This is something that we don't often see: the kind of clothing—simplified, but still very elegant and elaborate by today's standards—that the reform movement advocated, i.e. people like Oscar and Constance Wilde. You can imagine Constance wearing this!

These look creepy to us, but they were a fashionable, romantic gift in the 18th century. We see a whole collection of them on our Shady Ladies tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. https://hyperallergic.com/674112/the-18th-century-english-craze-for-one-eyed-portraits/?fbclid=IwAR0OPHquBb3_dvQqNDCrCDpjuFUcm5vSHJbaApxdM7UEzeclWoYpFV9uLmM

What the heck is an aiglet you might well ask? Well, take a look at your shoelaces. That little plastic bit is the aiglet. But it was not ever so. In centuries past aiglets were crafted of wood or metal, and sometimes were quite ornate. Their purpose was to create a finished end to cord or ribbon so that the unsightly fraying would not be visible, nor prone to getting worse. Such ribbons or cords were commonly used to fasten various parts of the costume together. At the upper end of their making, aiglets like we can see in this portrait by Alonso Sanchez Coello were made of precious metals and set with gemstones.
This is Jane Dormer, Duchess of Feria as painted by Sanchez Coello in 1563. Her aiglets finish broad ribbons that are in use to close the front of her skirt and narrow the opening of her black gown’s sleeves.
As a side note it was also quite common for sleeves to have an opening for the arm at both the elbow and the wrist.

Fashion & Beauty Tour of the Metropolitan Museum

How Do We Present Ourselves To The World? If you’ve never thought much about that question, you certainly will after this tour. That’s because you’ll learn about some of the most fascinating, bizarre and painful things people have done throughout history to look impressive, alluring and downright stunning. Welcome to Fashion and Beauty at the Met!

This tour is about everything glamorous. From the grand hairdos of Imperial Rome to the outrageous wigs of the court at Versailles; from gold ear spools in pre-Columbian America to neck rings in Africa and Southeast Asia; and from three hundred years of torturous corsets to three thousand years of gorgeous cosmetics, the history of fashion is on dazzling display at the Met. We’ll look at fashion from head to toe, as well as inside out. (Just what did Victorian women wear underneath those giant hoops?) And we’ll look at men, too—with their powdered wigs, white makeup, foppish ruffs and of course those ridiculous codpieces.

As always on a Shady Ladies tour, we’ll go beneath the surface to get to the real story: the political, social, and even medical currents that shaped fashion and how it changed. Why did French courtiers wear foot-high wigs in the 17th century? Were beauty spots really used to cover up syphilis? And how did bicycles affect the way women dressed in the closing years of the 19th century? On this fun and informative tour you’ll find out the answers to these and many more fascinating questions about fashion and beauty. Above all, we’ll come to see that fashion is one of art’s biggest topics—not only for what it tells us about changing standards of beauty, but also for what it reveals about the astonishing lengths to which people will go to attain it.
