The Detail and elegance of this Italian silk velvet theatre costume immediately struck my eye due to it's beauty. At first glance I believed it was a women's article of clothing but the fact that it was meant for a man gave me an insight on the styles and formality of dress for males during that period. This made me want to look more into the idea of clothing as art and what sets an article of clothing apart from being simply clothing and transcends it into a work of art.

I chose this picture for my costume ideas because the detail on the costume is tremendous. I also like the general colors on the costume.
