'Women, Fashion and Europeanisation in the Romanian Principalities'

in Amila Buturović, Irvin C. Schick (eds.) Women in the Ottoman Balkans (I.B.   Tauris, London, 2007)

(Translated into Turkish as Osmanlı Dőneminde Balkan Kadinlari, Istanbul Bilgi University, 2009)

This chapter examines sartorial shifts in old-regime Romania and the role of women in promoting the transition from Ottoman-inspired to European dress. Among the visual sources used are works produced by Jean-Etienne Liotard: 

'Liotard spent a few years in Constantinople (1738-42), where [...] he must have obtained special dispensation to wear Turkish dress, and a much less documented period in Moldavia (1742-43), where he gained first-hand knowledge of the lines, colours, and fabrics, as well as of the social and political conventions of the Turkish costume in a Balkan context.'
