visual show is based on the period in our history, when both sexes
spent lavishly on their attire. The days of Fops, Dandies and Marconies
vied with the over painted ladies of the time. The Eighteenth century
French Court set the trend and influenced high society until the
out break of the French Revolution. The use of toxic paints remained
in use until the early 19th century, when a clean fresh young complexion
became the vogue, during the long reign of Queen Victoria.
