The Greek Collection

In the ancient world, Greece was the undisputed leader of style and the arts. Because of this, the style of Roman dress is very similar and we have used the same patterns for some of the costumes, but printed them in different colours. Both cultures wore robes of draped cloth and male fashions were shorter in length than women's.

Wealthy Girl £21

The style of this tunic dress would have been worn for special occasions. For everyday, a long draped 'chiton' with decorative brooches along the arms was more usual. The use of gold jewellery was very common. A wrap called an 'himation' could be added for warmth or travel. This wrap was called the 'toga' in Roman society.
