A few months ago I’ve got an invitation to attend a 18th century event in the capital planed for this upcoming weekend.
The theme is “Bal a la Turque”, which refers to the 18th century flair for everything oriental. With the Roba a la Turque as the most popular fashion statement at the time.
When I’d decided to go I started looking for inspiration online, and found lots of gorgeous dresses and outfits all with their own charm and relation to the Turkish theme.
The signature for the Robe a la Turque was the short sleeves on top of longer ones, the cut away front, the Anglaise cut back and the white sash on the hip. Read more about the garment on American Duchess list of 18th century robes.
So many ideas, so little time….
