In 1837, the young (18 years old) and lovely Queen Victoria ascended to the throne and introduced new ways of dressing that set the tone for ladies of style and status for the next 60 years.Indeed, women all over the world tried to emulate this much-adored queen.
Following Victoria's lead, fashion was at once modest and elaborate. At the time of her arrival, slow methods of communication meant that styles changed slowly over several years, but later in the Victorian age, improved communication meant that styles began to change much more rapidly, as every woman wanted to be clothed in "the latest" styles.
