Belle Époque avaThe Belle Époque is a period from the Franco-Prussian War (1871) to the beginning of World War I (1914). European fashion in this era was blooming and developing. Historically, it was the time of economic prosperity, technological and cultural innovations, and the flourishing of arts. So, all of this was reflected in the European fashion. Let’s look at the old photos of these feminine and elegant women from the Belle Époque and try to imagine their lifestyle and daily routine.
