[Leer en español]

This glossary is a basic educational resource that provides definitions and translations of terms that are commonly found in archival records and descriptions of textiles and garments from the eighteenth century. It also includes notes on terms that are often considered ambiguous and polemic, such as the different words used to describe "fashion" (including "dress" and "costume," for example), as well as some of the debates related to their use.
