Fashion plate, from La Belle Assembleé
Add to album

This hand-coloured fashion plate is from La Belle Assembleé, a ladies' monthly magazine published in London. The plate illustrates a Parisian carriage dress and is dated 1 December, 1820.

The plate shows how the high waistline, which had been fashionable for the previous twenty years, was slowly beginning to drop to its more natural position from 1820 onwards. At the same time, hats and bonnets were becoming more elaborate.

Founded in 1806 by John Bell, La Belle Assembleé contained articles on cooking, painting and needlework. It also reported on events in the literary, musical and artistic world. It remained in publication until 1869.
