The history of fashion is as old as mankind. In addition to their basic function of warmth and body protection, clothing has increasingly come to be seen as a status symbol over the years. Today the distinction between women’s and men’s fashion is blurring, but that was a whole different story in the 18th and 19th centuries. The period of fashion that marked the life of the English writer Jane Austen returns once a year to the British city of Bath. At the eponymous festival, visitors should definitely wear costumes in the so-called Regency style, as shown in the popular Netflix series “Bridgerton”. About 500 participants take part in the “Regency Parade”, bringing this era of fashion to life.
