The Renaissance The Italian
Renaissance 1400-1600 Tudor 1500-1550 Elizabethan 1550-1600 C. Nicholas Hillard 1595-1600 ArtArtists of The Tudor Court. Victoria and Albert Museum. 1983.Print. In this image is Queen Elizabeth of England with different types of fashion principles of the Elizabethan period. Around her neck she wears pearls, one her favorite pieces of jewelry and an indication of STATUS and HIERARCHY. She is also wearing white lead makeup to make her look pale for EGO and VANITY. She wears a long pointed stomacher, which was a stiffened front peice of bodice (torso piece). On her upper body and around her neck she wears an open ruff. A ruff developed from a modest drawstring and ruffles that decorated the neckline of chemise. It usually rose out of a collar. Queen Elizabeth sports one that is open in the front. Her hair is worn in an updo so it won't interfere with her ruff. She is also wearing a wheel farmingdale under her gown that holds the skirt's shape. Lead white

Color influence

Visible chemise In this image we see a man who embodies different fashion principles of the Italian Renaissance. As you can see he is wearing an ermine or fur piece on the edges of his more refined
doublet or jacket. This image is dated much later into the 16th century towards the end of the renaissance so his attires appears more formal. The heavy black color
is influenced by the Germans and their fashion changes hroughtout this period. The white garment underneath the doublet is called a visible chemise. A visible chemise is an undergarment that is meant to be seen partially throughout ones ensemble. Bronzino. Eleonora Di Toledo and Her Son. 1545. Photograph. Renaissance Spell, Ufitzi, Florence.

Visible chemise


Closed robe

Styled hair This image depicts a woman in the
late Italian Renaissance wearing an
embroidered closed gown. Embroidery
is a type of needle work in which
designs are stitched into the fabric
rather than woven. Her gown varies
from other gowns because it does not
open in the front like some did. She
is sporting a Stomacher which was a
tight bodie that flattened the breast.
This style was used for SEDUCTION
because a visible chemise was
shown. It was considered seductive
because a chemise was an under-
garment. She has her hair in an
elaborate hairstyle and is wearing a
large necklace around her neck called
a chain of office. Campi, Vicenzo. The Fruit Seller. 1580. Photograph. Private Collection. Historical Artwork & Fashion Plates. Jennifer Thompson, 2000. Web. 20 June 2011. Sleeveless gown

Modest piece



Chemise When it came to the working
there really was not much to
their style of dress. They did
not have elaborate garments
and did not have enough
fabric for patterns and
designs. They usually wore
simple garments liek a
sleeveless gown over a long
chemise. A chemise was an
undergarment worn by every-
one. Int his image we see the
woman wearing a modest
piece which was a trianglar
piece of fabric under a deep
v-neckline. Simple garments
like such were worn for
UTILITY. It provided easy
mobility to get work done. Howard, Thomas. Shell-cameo with the Death of Meleager. 1585-1646. Photograph. Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Italy. Italian Renaissance, 16th Century. 119th ed. Vol. 99. Boston: Henry Lillie Pierce Fund, MA. Web. 20 June 2011. In this image we see a
pendant, which served as an
accessory in the Italian
Renaissance. This one in
particular is a very fine light
violet color lining the back-
ground with white figures
on top that tell the story of
the death of Meleager. It is
has a border of gold which
represents that the wearer

by a monarch. Violet

pattern In this image is a woman's jacket from the late Elizabethan period in England. It is constructed of an undyed linen, embroidered with silver and gilt-silver yarns. Embroidery is a type of needle work in which designs are stitched into the fabric rather than woven. this is usually done by women. The jacket also has spangles in daffodil scroll pattern, trimmed with metallic lace. This jacket probably belonged to someone of higher STATUS because of the embroidery and styled lace that it has.

front The image depicts a
shoe made in the late Tudor period in England. This shoe is made of leather and metal with a modern front. They were
previously styled with a
duckbill front which emphasized girth, horizontility, and width. They were worn by many in tudor society. I beieve they were used for UTILITY to protect feet from harsh conditions. Short hair

Doublet Unkown. Dudley, Third Baron North. 1581-1666. Photograph. Prints, Drawings and Paintings Collection, England. Sidney F. Sabin. Boston, MA. Musee De Louvre. Web. 21 June 2011. This image is of a man in the Tudor
period in England. As you can see he
is wearing a doublet which is a short
jacket with pumkin breeches, which
were padded to show off a smaller waist
and legs. Under his breaches he is
wearing a pair of hose. Hose is a
bifurcated garment that allowed move-
ment and was tight to the legs to show
shape. He also wears a codpiece that
modestly covered genitalia. On his
doublet we can see a signiture style of
slashing and puffing on the arms.
Slashing and puffing as when the outer
garment was slashed and puffing was
the pulling of the undergarment through
the slash to create a puff. He is also
wearing a startched ruff around his neck
which was a more elaborate version of a
regular ruff created with a rawstring and
a chemise. He sports short hair so it
won't interrupt with is startched ruff. I
believe this style was for EGO and
VANITY. Teerlinc, Levina. Princess Elizabeth. 1546-1666. Photograph. England. Domain Art. Unknown, 1 Feb. 2007. Web. 21 June 2011. Stomacher

Red & Gold

Chemise In this image is a woman in
the Tudor period in England.
She is wearing a red and gold ensemble that consists of a long open gown that shows her underskirt. There is embroidery on her fabric which is a type of needle work that stitched a pattern into fabric. She sports some
hanging sleeves with slashing and puffing which is a style of pulling the chemise through slashed pieces in the fabric. She is also wearing a stomacher that is a tight bodice piece. Also
on her head she is wearing a Blazo. A Blazo is a beehive headress worn by women. Ibelieve her ensemble shows
that she is of higher STATUS and HIERARCHy because of the gold and red color. Red was especially deemed higher status because it was expensive to get. Barrow, Mandy. Poor Tudors. 1485-1666. Photograph. England. Project Britain. Feb. 2010. Web. 21 June 2011. Chemise



cap In this image we see a
man and woman of the
working class of the
Tudor period. They often
wore simple clothing
to allow them mobility
and comfort to be able to
get accomplish everyday
tasks. Women wore
simple gowns with head
coverings. Men wore
chemise which was an
undergarment under a
doublet or jacket. They
also wore fat caps that
resemble modern day
berets. Th clothing for
the woking class was
mostly for UTILITY. Hanging




Embroidery Unknown. Elizabethan Man. 150-1600-1666. Photograph. England. Fashions: Women & Men. Charlene Chrismon, Feb. 2001. Web. 21 June 2011. In this image is a man in the Elizabethan
period. He is wearign different garments that
was used during that time. Like a doublet which
is a jacket. He is also wearing hose on his legs.
Hose are biurcated garments mean to be very
tight to the leg and. On his collar is a ruff which
is made from drawstring and chemise around the
neck. About his hose he is wearing pumpkin
breeches that are padded to make the waist
seem smaller and to eccentuate the legs. All
around his ensemble you can see the fine
embroidery which is a needle work done to
stitch in a pattern in the fabric as oppose to
woven. This was usually done by woman. I
believe ensembles like this one was used for
either EGO and VANITY or simply GROUP
IDENTIFICATION because of his sword. Unknown. Elizabethan Working Class. 1500s. Photograph. England. Merchant Faire. Feb. 2001. Web. 21 June 2011. Chemise
