Collection: 1780s Fabric Design

The fashion of the 1780s was characterized by elaborate and extravagant styles for both men and women. These dresses were typically adorned with intricate embroidery, lace, and ribbons.
The hoop skirts that had been popular in earlier decades began to decrease in size, with small paniers or hip pads replacing them for everyday wear. The robe à l’anglaise, characterized by a fitted bodice and closed front opening, gained popularity during this time. Another notable style was the robe à la polonaise, known for its distinctive swags created by looping up the skirt.
