ottoman fashion

A beautiful collection of Ottoman ladies' clothing was on display at the Yakutiye Medresi in Erzurum. I love learning about the fashions of bygone eras, and the colours and patterns of the fabrics and embroidery made me swoon!

Imagine the time and care it took to create such details, and how lovely the ladies looked! When back in Istanbul, I might need to revisit the Sadberk Hanım Museum in my old stomping ground, Büyükdere, which has an outstanding collection of Ottoman women's clothing and a current exhibit on shoes.
