Fashion and costume have always formed
an integral part of society, class and individualism....
(Two Tax Gentlemens - detail)
"He wears his faith but as the fashion of his hat"
Colonel Tarleton, 1782 (detail)
Sir Joshua Reynolds, 1723-1792
"Fashion condemns us to make many follies;
the greatest is to make ourselves its slave"
The Dauphin, Louis de France, 1760s (detail)
Studio of Alexandre Roslin, 1718-1793
"Fashions have done more harm than revolutions"
Do we agree with that ???
