Western Fashion Timeline by Terrizae Western Fashion Timeline by Terrizae
Edit: I made another one specifically for 19th C. women's clothing: terrizae.deviantart.com/art/19…

Just having fun with Gabriel and Julia, because I like drawing pretty dresses and I have all these reference books that I figured I should get some use out of.
If you're wondering why I included 4 decades from the 1900s and only 1 from the 1600s, it's because a) I only drew my favorites and b) I tried to pick eras where there were significant changes in style. The 1900s saw drastic changes in fashion in a relatively short period of time whereas the 1600s didn't. Also, there's a hell of a lot more reference available for the 19th through the current centuries than there is for earlier time periods.

Download to see closer (it's pretty big).
Gabriel and Julia are my original characters, their outifts were referenced from the following books:

What People Wore- Douglas Gorsline
Chronicle of Western Costume- John Peacock
Fashion- The Collection of the Kyoto Costume Institute: A History from the 18th to the 20th Century

this is awesome, thank you for making a timeline! a curious but not dedicated fashion seeker (like myself) can find it hard to find decent examples of historical clothes. (google searches aren't always accurate...)

The Knights Templar did not exist in 1090 AD, nor did they wear their crosses in the center of their torso like that. Also, Surcoats and Tabbards were not a fashion trend until the 13th Century. What a late 11th Century man and woman would be wearing are Bliauts, Tunics, and Gambesons.

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

Nice timeline! I didn't realise some of the differences from Middle Age nor among the 1500s (and the same goes for the 1700s x'D...), but now we can see it well. Another nice thing are Gabriel and Julia poses.

Why does it seem like humans overtime have gotten lazier and lazier to look cool? I would totally wear a 1780's look if it did not make me look like an idiot!

Nice sartorial timeline!

By the way Terrizae, do you study history regarding those periods? Which is your favourite item of clothing ever and which do you consider irrelevant?

Also, Gabriel and Julia look mighty happy in their attires, how did you come up with their names? 

I am guessing the angel Gabriel and the Shakespearean Julia.

Why did you draw what seems to be a knight of the Templars in the 11th century when the order was only found in the 12th century? Like, sure the Crusaders all had crosses on them but red cross on white clothing is distinctly Templar. Also im pretty sure I read that they only started wearing that specific combo in like the 13th or 14th century. So I am wondering if there is any specific reason for it.

That aside I am very intriguiged by your study of period clothing. Im a fan of history myself and I also wanted to get into it...

Lovely work, but the man outfit for 1090 is clearly not the fashion of the time, well not more than a comando gear would be ours today ^^ you wouldn t wear a coat of mail if you weren't expected to be hit with swords and axes in a short future ;)

Guys, this is ridiculous, no one wants to wear any kind of armor when they don't absolutely have to, heretic or not, a coat of mail is annoying to wear all day, if you really want some kind of armor on, better stick to the gambeson if you're not on campain^^
