The Real Regency
For a lot of people, Jane Austen films and BBC miniseries are their first introduction to regency fashion. I could go into design choices and appealing to a modern audience, but really, it's probably all been said before. The real point is--where do you go for a more historical approach to early 19th century clothing? How do you go one step beyond the stage and screen?
This past year, my dear friend Nuranar provided the world with a wonderful resource. She laid hands upon hundreds of fashion plates for the 1800-1813 and created a set for each year on Flickr! Her photostream is here, where you can access all the 13 years of fashion-y goodness. Here are a few of my favorites, too!
