This amazing red and gold brocade open robe was made in Italy between 1725 and 1750. I love the red quilted petticoat.

  • Calash, 1790
The calash style was designed in the late 18th century to allow women to  wear a fashionable headdress without damaging their coiffure.  Hairstyles during the late 18th century were growing increasingly large  and elaborate, but bonnets were still required for protection and  decency. The name “calash” is derived from “calèche,” the hood of a  “French carriage,” because the material was ruched along a collapsible  cane support structure, much like the hood of a carriage. Many calashes  were treated to be water-proof.
