Fashion plate, from Le Petit Courrier des Dames
Add to album

This hand-coloured fashion plate is from the Le Petit Courrier des Dames, a weekly fashion magazine published in Paris. The plate is one of a series entitled, 'Modes de Paris' and illustrates outfits for a man and a young boy. Engraved by Damours, it is dated 31 March 1835.

The outfits have been created for a day at the races at Longchamps in Paris. They may have been designed by 'Bouchoz'.

Longchamps and Auteuil are racecourses in the Bois de Boulogne - a 2,140 acre park planned along English lines by Napoleon and situated on the western edge of Paris. The racecourse lawns were ideal settings for displaying the latest fashions.
