Victorian Era

During the reign of Queen Victoria, social changes were experienced by many and showed no signs of slowing down. An embrace of romanticism, mysticism, and the arts by the masses suggests people were straying away from conformity that arose during a previously religion dominated time period. The Victorian era saw the second half of the Industrial Revolution, political reform, Imperialism, and an expansion for the right to vote. This section includes the styles of dress and accessories that was common during the Victorian period, especially in the United Kingdom, England specifically.
