Do you long for the romance of 19th century life? White, floaty empire dresses, elegant châteaux and whispers of love in a gilded salon.
This print is taken from a 1901 fashion catalogue. The fashion house, High Life Tailor, published beautiful works about the history of fashion, as a means to advertise their own stylish designs. This is the second print in the series which tell the story of the romance of the main couple, from falling in love at first sight in the grounds of the château, to marriage and a happy life, and eventually being presented to the Emperor Napoléon and Empress Josephine. It’s a very romantic story.
