Kyoto Costume Institute

Gallery of Western clothing, in timeline format, inspire us with the great novelty of human creation. Examples span 250 years of changing styles in fashion, with the earliest articles dating from the eighteenth century. Many of the styles might make modern women ask, "What on earth were they thinking?" but it might also be possible to draw some conclusions about society at various points in time by understanding the clothing styles.
