Post The "gazette des atours" of Marie-Antoinette
The "Gazette des atours" of Marie-Antoinette, for the year 1782 is available on Amazon! :D

It is a very beautiful book in 2 parts:
- an explanatory part of the vestimentary mode of this century, with contains sketches of dresses etc..
- and the gazette, copy of the true one which is in the « Archives nationales de France », with the images of fabric’s dresses and annotations of the « dame d’atours » about the type of the dresses and their source.

Thus we find in this gazette all the dresses remainders of Marie-Antoinette :D

Ah! :D
Very interesting, thank you.
I have Galéries des Modes 1778-1787, edited by Stella Blum from Metropolitan Museum of Art, that is also a good one.

You're welcome Aurora! :wink:

This gazette is jewels!
But the book "Galéries des Modes 1778-1787" seems very also interesting I did not know it! :D
I like all which speaks about the taste of Marie-Antoinette, for the clothing, the gardens, music etc...

Do you know Le style de Marie-Antoinette (Editions Assouline 2005) par Adrien Goetz, who teaches in Sorbonne? That is also fine.
