Description

Women’s Directoire fashions have often been stereotyped to the sheer, white, short-sleeved gown with an elevated waistline and colunmal silhouette. Using Paris’ Journal des Dames et des Modes (JDM) from its inception on May 20, 1797(middle of Year 5 of the republican calendar), to September 22, 1799 (end of Year 7), this research examines 145 fashion plates and their editorial descriptions to measure the incidence of these phenomena.
