If, like me you love clothes past and present, you're
only a step away from seeing the possibilities of using textiles of all eras to
decorate today's homes. In vintage terms these textiles include old lace and linen,
shawls and quilts. In addition to garments, Candy Shiveley of
contentmentfarm.com sells wonderful Paisley, Kashmir and Chinese piano
style shawls as well as exquisite lace stoles. She also sells
marvellous antique patchwork quilts all perfect for interior enhancement
and none need to be fitted to the body! All can be artfully draped over
sofas, pianos and tables or hung as works of art or even used as
originally intended for warmth on a chilly evening!
Fashion-Era.com looks at women's costume and fashion history and analyses the mood of an era. Changes in technology, leisure, work, cultural and moral values. Homelife and politics also
contribute to lifestyle trends, which in turn influence the clothes we wear. These are the changes that make any era of society special in relation to the study of the costume of a period.
