Fashion changed dramatically over the life of Jane Austen. In 1775, the year of his birth, the women wore dresses with corsets constriction, hoops, or panniers. When Jane was in her 20's no-classical influences took over. Women wear were tall, agile, relatively simple and made with a soft cotton cloth or muslin clear. Towards the end of the life of Jane, in 1817, the dresses were again decorated with pleats, ruffles and lace. Waist collapsed, hourglass silhouette even more rigid and silk and satin became fashionable. "The variations in size, compared to the natural waist, then again, were a feature of the time, one of the most dynamic periods in fashion," said Leong. Commissioner also said that our knowledge fashion at the time Jane comes largely from period films. Specifically, admire "costumes designed by Jenny Beavan and John Bright in the direction of Ang Lee and sensitivity, citing the fashion of the 1790s when Austen wrote the novel, instead of 1811, when it became his first published book. "*
While empire dresses were popular for only a short period of time, they seem less cumbersome and restrictive narrowing our modern fashion eyes of Georgian and Victorian eras. For modern lovers, a costume worn by Colin Firth in Pride and Prejudice, 1995, will be presented. (They say it is a white shirt.)
