Renaissance Florentine Dress Costume
The beginning of the Renaissance inaugurated a new prodigious and fabulous era. The mode in these times was considerably determined by the fine arts and culture being at the height.
Here is an early Renaissance clothing. Splendor and pompous trim and details are joined smoothly within a garb with the silhouette both elegant and naive.
Corresponding to the original design of the end of the XV century, such renaissance clothes were known as "gamurra" and appertained to what is called the Florentine fashion.
Normally this dress had been worn over the corset and chemise which you can buy separately in our online store.
Renaissance dress main features:
- Great selection of natural velvet available
- Amazingly wide skirt (bottom circumference exceeds 11 yards)
- Exclusive trim designed for our renaissance series
- Handmade embroidery with pearls and beads
- Front lacing
Fabric: natural cotton velvet. The skirt consists of 8 or 10 gores according to your measurements. It takes 13-16 yards of fabric to produce this renaissance clothing with the skirt hem more then 11 yards. The pattern of the trim with pomegranates has been worked out exclusively for this line of dresses by our designer. There is an embroidery with artificial pearls and silvery braids at the sleeves and at the bodice which are also lined with the viscose. Three velvet laces attache sleeves to this renaissance clothing while buttons on the wrists fit sleeves. With the openings on the bodice you can see the shirt. There is a lacing on the front of the dress.
Such renaissance clothes require rather precise fit so please be careful while taking your measurements. Dress can be worn with or without corset though corset will definitely increase authenticity and emphasis of the outline. However you should be ready to pay for the beauty and historical authority with the necessity to keep a moral backbone continuously.
