Welcome to my website on History of Fashion. This site focuses on changes in clothing in the Western civilization, with an emphasis on women's fashion. Along with brief text descriptions, paintings, drawings and photographs depicting various fashion of different periods are shown in thumbnails. Please click on the thumbnail to view a larger image.


This website does not intend to cover every single aspect of changes in fashion over the centuries. But it does offer a picturesque view of the general fashion trends.


During my research, I have encountered the following websites and links that contributed pictures and text to this website.
