1. One thing that people of seem surprised by when it comes to fashion history is all the bright colors. Contrary to what history class would have you believe, the past was not in black in white.
To emphasize this, I thought it would be fun to do a “Rainbow Week” this week. Every day is going to focus on articles of clothing of one particular color, covering all historical eras. As the beginning is a very good place to start, today’s color will be RED.
Starting with this exceptionally beautiful corset, stays and stomacher that has amazingly survived for almost 400 years. Made between 1620 and 1640.
