Could you imagine going your whole life without properly seeing your own reflection? Or wear a corset every day, even when working outside in the summer? It is sometimes hard to imagine that this was the reality for many people centuries ago. In a series called Dress in… by Crows Eye Productions, the clothing processes of people from different eras are revealed. The time spans from 7th century Britain to Renaissance Florence to evening wear of the 1920s.

Most of the videos in the series are around three to four minutes long and focus on those with higher social status. Some talk about historical figures like Mary Shelley, Jane Austen and Queen Victoria, while others share insight into what housekeepers and working women wore. Although it primarily revolves around women’s clothing, the series also touches on topics such as the clothing of British soldiers and how Prince Albert dressed. With so many topics covered in the Dress in…there are bound to be a few videos that every viewer will find interesting.

Each video contains information not only about the clothes needed to complete the chosen outfit, but also historical information explaining the reasoning behind those clothes. For instance, Dressing in the 1920s – Evening Wear, details that due to shorter hemlines, shoes were now important parts of an outfit. Since the shoes were actually visible, they were often colorful and decorative. This era also brought dancing, parties, and drinking to the fore, so shoes had to be flatter and more practical. Dresses from this era had the iconic 1920s drop waist, androgynous shapes, and many were adorned with intricate geometric shapes. As the video explains, this was due to major Egyptian tomb discoveries and the Art Deco movement.

Dress in… is a very popular series for the female production company founded by Nicole Loven. The Crows Eye Productions team detail that they created the series to “bring history to life through beautifully crafted videos using historically accurate period costumes and locations”, and viewers seem to agree. .

And of course you’re also talking about the [jewelry], shoes, underwear. The attention to detail is so perfect in all these videos. Many fans of the channel not only thank the filmmakers for creating the videos, but also ask them to cover other topics in the future, such as ancient Egypt and Vikings.
