Marie Antoinette on fashion

Marie Antoinette has something to say in the defense of fashion!

"It is true I am rather taken up with dress; but as to feathers, everyone wears them and it would seem extraordinary if I did not."

In response to a letter from Maria Theresa March, 5 1775


  1. We have repeated fashions throughout time. I don't think we've ever repeated the feather fashion. Have we?

  2. only at the Moulin Rouge! Though, the dancers do add the odd bead and sequin!
