During the 15th and 16th centuries, there was an enormous growth of wealth among the upper class citizens of Europe. This translated quite quickly into extraordinary displays of opulent attire and this collection of regal renaissance fashions are still impacting societies today.

Such classy royal clothing comes in the form of ruffled collars, angular necklines and heavy dresses for women, with baggy breeches, feathered berets and toggled trench coats for men.
