Lady Maridy appears for the crowd dressed as a lovely lady of high standing. With wit, insight, and grace she then proceeds to undress down to a modernly modest drawers and chemise, explaining the use and reason for each of the 17 or more articles of clothing and accessories.
Victorian fashions range from the 1840s up to about 1900. Women’s fashions in that sixty years were almost as diverse as the following sixty years. Women went from wearing several petticoats under their skirts, to huge four foot diameter cages. Next came the bustle (ie, the huge rear) and then the sleeves wide enough to make navigating some doorways a chore. The Victorian Fashion show showcases many of these fashions.
Elizabethan fashion shows showcase fashions from a servant girl in the kitchens to the Archbishop of Dublin, from a lowly, though wealthy mercenary to the Queen herself. All fashions are period correct and thoroughly researched. There can be five to fifteen different fashions.
With anywhere from five to twenty five models (provided for you or by you), the Victorian and Elizabethan Fashion shows are sure to be a hit with all ages and even both genders.
