Historical costumes has always been one of my biggest obsessions, but as a young designer that just graduated from school, it felt like it was way out of my league. And yet here I am, proud of two historical inspired dresses.
The first one I want to talk about is my interpretation of an early 16th century gown that has been worn by metal singer Tarja Turunen. She has the perfect look to represent Anne Boleyn from England.
Typical for dresses by that period, were the almost square neckline but slightly curved, narrow sleeves and in the winter covered with huge fur cuffs. Of course there were several layers, but since it was for a photo project, I decided to only make two skirts.
