Using fashion prints from her collection, Candice will provide an overview of the types of clothing worn during the time of Jane Austen. Candice will explore fashions for various occasions or activities, including day wear and evening wear. Terms used during the period — such as undress, half dress and full dress — will be explained and illustrated with prints. Popular types of outerwear will also be showcased, including pelisses, spencers, mantles, and shawls. The general evolution of style will also be discussed, including changing waistlines, hemlines, and trimmings.
Candice’s PowerPoint presentation uses lots and lots of beautiful images. If the event is in-person, she may also bring along binders filled with original fashion prints from all the popular Regency-period magazines for attendees to view, as well as examples of individual issues of some of those magazines.
