Victorian Fashion EraIn this gallery are twelve color and black and white illustrations that depict clothing from the Victorian Fashion Era. These designs come from Godey’s Lady’s Book, Volume 66, published in 1863. The Victorian era was a time of great change in fashion as the ideal shape evolved from the high-waisted, full-skirted styles of the early Victorian era to the more slender, corseted silhouettes of the late Victorian era. Victorian fashion was a reflection of the social and economic changes that were taking place during this time. The Industrial Revolution was in full swing, and people were starting to move to cities in search of work. This led to a change in fashion, as people began to dress in a more practical way.
