    Motoring Duster, c. 1910-1915. Gift of California Hospital Medical Center to Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), Los Angeles

  • Virginia Irby

    Descriptions: The automobile just came out at the beginning of the Edwardian period and often did not have roofs (convertible style) so women had to wear goggles and duster jackets to keep the dirt away.

  • Sarah Neal

    Edwardian Motoring Duster with goggles. c 1910-1915. Open cars still created dusty dirty atmospheres and country roads were often unmade. Loose topcoats (duster coats) in leather, or special motoring coats acted as protection from weather and cold. Oil smuts could be a problem so women wore thick face veils with their hats and even goggles.

  • Karolien V.E.

    Steampunk inspiration: A 1910 Review of the complete wardrobe for the fashionable woman for Autumn and Winter -Motoring costumes. Women wore fashionable "dusters" [loose overgarments] over the normal daywear to protect from dirt and grime.
