During the French Revolution the French textile industry had suffered. Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte stopped the import of English textiles, and promoting the French economy through fashion. To make women buy more material he forbade them to wear the same dress more than once to court.  Ladies dresses also had extra fabric gathered in the back of their dresses.  It is said that Bonaparte even went so far as to have fireplaces at the Tuileries blocked up so that ladies would wear more clothing. Empress Josephine was a great fashion leader, and she dictated many of the fashions at the time. The high-waisted style popular in the early 19th century was known as the Empire style. White was the most popular color for dresses during this time, but mostly for the upper class as a status symbol because they were easily soiled. Pastel or other colored dresses were more common among lower classes, with white being reserved for special occasions.

The Pride and Prejudice Print is printed on 80 lb. acid free paper. Each print is signed by the artist.

One can hardly have an interest in historical fashion and NOT have a love for Jane Austen, the author of Pride and Prejudice. One of the things I love about Jane Austen is that she was supported herself with her writing ability at a time when most women depended on others to take care of them if they were unmarried.

The original illustration was created using Prismacolor® markers and pencils on high quality drawing paper.
