Burgundian fashion

style of dress from the 15th century, notable for its bold colours, the high quality of materials used and its trim, noble lines which could accommodate many fashions. Some cultural historians place the origins of fashion in this period. Characteristic of this style are the trim and pointed shapes in its clothing and hats. Fabrics were prepared from wool, cotton and flax. Details included a variety of adornments featuring bells. Ladieswear is notable for its narrow, lace-up waist, trail, veil and high, cone-shaped. Dresses were edged with festoon work or a border. Men wore close-fitting jerkins with standing collars and quilted fronts; stocking-shaped trousers had legs of various colours. Pointed footwear might measure three times the length of the foot.
