    Fashion in the Gran March

    By way of update, I've uploaded Fashion in the Flanaess - The Flan and Fashion in the Flanaess - The Suel. In the latter, I added a parapgraph or two about the Gran March, along lines previously discussed in the General Discussion folder.

    You will, however, want to look at the Flan and Suel entries, along with the Western Aerdi entry, to get a real look at the Gran March fashion. Fashion there is striated or layered, not purely one thing or another - Peasantry (largely Flan), Nobility/Gentry (Western Aerdi influenced) and Court (Suel).

    Feel free to use whatever suits from these posts to add to the Gran March Project. I'm happy to contribute. Smile

    Excellent GVD. I'll be glad to see that article. It will be very useful to me in my GM clothing style sketching.

    Hi Tedra, Happy

    I don't know if this will help but the three books that have been most useful in putting together the Fashion in the Flanaess articles have been:

    Barton, Historic Costume for the Stage (Walter H. Baker Company, 1935) (Great illustrations and text)

    Wilcox, The Mode in Costume, (Charles Scribner's Sons, 1948)
    (Not many illustrations but good definitions and descriptions that help clarify or fill in blanks from Barton, above)

    Calasibetta, Fairchild's Dictionary of Fashion, (Fairchild Books, 1998)
    (Good illustrations and clear descriptions and definitions)

    While we used other books as well, these are the Big Three we relied upon, cross-referencing between the three to get a solid definition of different garments and styles. If you can find these in a library or used bookstore, they are really good.

    I'll look forward to seeing your drawings. Smile
