Overview

The Edwardian age was known for the excesses, elegance, and strict social rules modelled by the wealthy. Department stores selling ready-to-wear clothing made it possible for more people to have a variety of outfits. Clever home seamstresses could copy patterns they couldn’t afford to purchase. Changes were beginning to creep in as everything that once seemed permanent began to change. Corsets started disappearing from women’s wardrobes. The indomitable aristocratic elite began struggling to make ends meet. The younger generation redefined everything from good manners to falling in love.
