This also translated in fashion; the Queen Victoria era is now referred to as the ‘beginning of fashion.’ Rich women in that era used to wear different layers of beautiful dresses, enriched by ruffles, lace, and jewelry. The clothes showed women’s place in society. The accent was put on the waistline and often they used corsets for getting a smaller waist. From this style, a particular type became popular, which is the gothic Victorian dress.
