Inspiration

Theodora was born in Cyprus 500AD and died in Constantinople 548AD. She was married to Emperor Justinian 1. Clothes during this period was full of colour and highly patterned. Clothes in the upper classes were made from highly expensive patterned cloth & Byzantium silk. The clothes were woven, dyed & printed.

Theodora is wearing a outfit loosely based on costume from this time. Theodora wears a belt, cuffs and crown, which is taken from the era.

Menet:
Linen was the most popular material used for Ancient Egyptian clothing. It was comfortable & kept the wearer cool, due to the desert heat.

Clothes were decorated with jewels, regardless of social standing. Those who could not afford jewels would use coloured stones or coloured pottery beads.

Women wore lots of jewellery - necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets & neck collars.

Egyptians did not wear shoes, they mostly went about their day bare footed. However, they did wear sandals on special occasions.
