Modern Greco-Roman

Togas and gladiator get-ups go from men-only to female fashion fix

Implications - The quintessential dress in Greco-Roman times was the toga, which was typically worn only by men. Now, the gladiator look has transformed itself into an haute couture style, worn by fashion-forward females. Ironically, however, the pieces that take the most inspiration from historic dress are the styles actually considered more avant-garde.
