A fashion plate of c.1688


A paper by Alice Dolan on a “fashion” plate of c.1688, covered with textiles and lace, which Dolan refers to as an adorned print is online at: http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/journals/research-journal/issue-03/an-adorned-print-print-culture,-female-leisure-and-the-dissemination-of-fashion-in-france-and-england,-c.-1660-1779/  The subject is the opera dancer Marie-Thérèse Perdou de Subligny (1666-1735), and the silks and lace used to adorn the plate are discussed, together with the nature of fashion plates of that period.
