OMG! This is the first time I have ever really understood what the term "fashion plate" literally means! A printing plate, of course! Duh! And this is from someone who has worked in the printing industry.
Thanks, Paula! :)

Bela, 'fashion plates' were a precursor to fashion magazines in Europe. The French set the fashion and spread the word through these printed fashion plates. Women would then choose the styles they liked and commission seamstresses to copy to copy them.

Actually, I quite like the turban (?) in the upper left of the Head Dresses fashion plate. Wonder where I could try one on? Or possibly even commission one? Maybe with some color in part of it?

Ya... that is what I do with my friends on the weekends too... we love wearing lamp shades and shoot a few arrows, oh how little things change.
