Through studying paintings and other art forms we can uncover fashion trends from the past. From the embellishment of roman togas to define status and ranks, to the precious stones and gold thread used in the dresses of the rich merchants from Venice. The elaborate dresses of the ladies of the Courts of the renaissance, to the Persian rugs or the tapestries from Northern Europe. Come and learn about the history of fashion trends and see how these past styles have evolved into what we wear and how we decorate our homes today.
