An extract of fashion terms used in the nineteenth century from various fashion magazines and from the “Corriere delle Dame” (Milan, 1804-1875)
The models of women’s and men’s day and ceremony dresses, presented below, come from the magazines listed below; I apologize if some cards are a little moved as they were photographed without a support …. Thanks for your understanding!
The documentary sources are kept at the Manfrediana Library in Faenza
Le Follet (some cards are without dating, but presumably they can be traced back to the period 1840-1865)
