Victorian Style in Modern Times

With the development of modern fashion design industry, many fashion styles have been widely adapted into its modern version, including victorian style. Victorian style fashion in its own historical period was very different from the style we saw today and the real fashion during victorian era does not have much to do with what we call as victorian style today.

When we trace back to the old days, clothing and behavior in victorian age were very stiff, for example women’s status was fairly low as feminism was not so well-received at that time.

In modern times, we modern people have our own interpretation about that age as well as misunderstandings. However, a large number of designs have been borrowed from that time like women’s bonnets, corsets, and the ball gowns. Here is an adapted victorian evening dress. As we can see, the color is very bright, which is very rare in the old time and the clipping is also very modern style. The whole shape was still very victorian.
