This image represents the old drawing of the Ionic Chiton from Ancient Greece, and this picture is connected to the image before, with the modern day Ionic Chiton. In Ancient Greece these garments were worn by both women and men, and were always fastened by many broaches and pins at the shoulder and along the sleeves. Just like the other garments, there was usually a belt involved somewhere in the middle to hold the dress in place, as well as draping the extra material over the belt.
This type of jewelry was hugely influenced by the fashion in Ancient Egypt. Egyptians were known for their beautifully big accessories with many beads and colors. The gold and turquoise colors are shown a lot for jewelry being worn in Ancient Egypt, and the big stone in the middle of one bracelet, as well as the many beads woven together on another.
Here is Ancient Rome, and following this image will be a few images of the clothing during the time period of Ancient Rome, and how they are related to some of the modern day clothing being worn today.
This image shows kind of a combination of a Stola and a Palla. A stola is a sleeveless overdress often worn by matrons. A palla is a draped rectangle similar to a toga but smaller. This image shows a woman wearing a draped, sleeveless, rectangle is being draped over her front. The dress also shows the wrapping of the fabric around the front.
Here is an image of a modern day one shouldered Doric Peplos. These garments were originated in Ancient Greece and were made from wool or linen. This dress is probably made from a much more elegant material such as silk or even cotton. This resembles the Doric Chiton because the middle of it is folded over a belt, and the one shoulder sleeve resembles what the sleeves looked like in Ancient Greece, with a pin to secure it.
Here is a picture of an example of how the Egyptian women would wear their makeup, which resembles my other photo of Elizabeth Taylor in the movie Cleopatra. There makeup was made up of dark, thick lines, that enhanced the size of their eyes because the end of the eyeliner was extended past the corner of the eyes for the winged-eyeliner look we now know today. This picture also resembles a headpiece and a large necklace that is beaded.
Here is a picture of what a Doric Chiton looked like in Ancient Greece. This picture is very similar to the modern day dress on the red carpet, showing both of the sides being pinned right on top of the shoulders, with some ruffles in the middle along with a small fabric belt with material covering it to form what looks like layers. Doric Chitons are sleeveless garments as this image here shows.
Here is another modern day inspired dress from Ancient Greece representing the Doric Chiton, with both shoulders pinned at the top. This dress also represents the Hellenistic Chiton which has the belt right below the bust and is also made of a lightweight fabric. This modern day dress looks like its made of a pretty lightweight material as well, probably silk.
This image shows the beginning of headpieces. The Egyptian Headdress which were sometimes referred to as Head Crowns, were worn by Pharaohs, and had many different names and meanings to them. Depending on what type of headdress they wore (there were many different kinds) it always had a significance to an event or ritual. This image compared to the modern day images is still very similar, with the detail in the crown piece and beads. This statue also represents how they wore their…
This image here shows a beautiful dress, inspired by Ancient Egypt times. This dress would be similar to a v-neck tunic with a big neckline collar attached. Women in Ancient Egypt used these big accessory pieces when dressing up. The detail on the collar is gold with what looks like beads or gems attached, with a matching belt piece singing the waist in the middle. This dress seems to be made out of a silky netting material, but in Ancient Egypt, it would have been made of cotton or…
This image represents the Ancient Greece version of the modern day Doric Peplos image before this. The women would take one big square piece of fabric and wrap it around to form the shape, and then hold it together with pins. They also would put on a belt in the middle to singe the waist and then pull extra material up over the belt to show what looked like layers. Doric Peplos are pinned at each shoulder which this picture shows.
