Champagne Citizens

  

 

Burgeosie fashion at the end of 16th century is an interesting testimony of effort to follow the actual Spanish fashion. The patterns correspond to noble dresses. Common clothing is characterized by looser setout allowing manual work. We find cheap materials (flax, wool). The clothing is decorated by embroidery, visible lacing, filled sleeves. We invested a lot of energy to shoes, belts, berets and aprons but also to such details as buttons covered by colorful treads.
