Victorian Trading Co.


The Victorian Trading Co. has offered "Pre-Raphaelite gowns" before, but I believe this style is new? Too much for my budget, but a pretty gown nonetheless.

I saw that too! It is a pretty dress, and if I thought I'd ever have somewhere to wear it, I'd gather my funds together and buy it. But I just don't think I ever would. It is closer to being a Pre-Raphaelite gown than the other one they used to sell.

I wonder if you've seen the gown that the company Pyramid Collection has in their catalog, that they're calling a Regency gown, but that to my eye, would also well suit an Aesthetic maid. It's in a lovely creamy brocade, and I'm very tempted. It's much less expensive, for one thing!

Also a lovely gown, although quite Jane Austen :D

Did you see their Ophelia Coat? GORGEOUS!! Reminded me of the clothing in brotherhood series from last year. Lovely.

Helen, sorry such a late reply, but no, I hadn't seen it, and wow is it beautiful! I can't afford it, but stunning!

The two movements began during the Victorian era, and celebrated a return to the aesthetics and simplicity of medieval times, as well as the romance of nature and chivalry.trading system
