We are going to the Carnival in Venice again in February. I lost count how many times I’ve been but it must be about 8 times. This time I wanted a sleeker silhouette for our costumes: no big hoop skirts, but long slender skirts and big puff sleeves. Much like the turn-of-the-century fashion of the 1900s. I googled for images and below you find some drawings and prints from old magazines.
Our theme this time is ‘Winter Czars’. Some of our men will go with the military look, without the swords, other will go with a more traditional folk look with long overcoats. We purchased the fabrics in Paris last Summer.
