Eighteenth-Century French Fashions in Full Color
The Galerie des Modes has been called the "most beautiful collection in existence on the fashions of the 18th century." Published over a 10-year period, its plates were elegantly drawn, accurately engraved, and exquisitely hand colored. Here are 64 of the finest plates, reproduced faithfully from the originals and selected by costume historian Stella Blum.
