Long-tailed coats and foppish attire were soon assigned to the back of the wardrobe.

Our Women’s Dressmaking in London:

But what of women’s dressmaking in London? In truth, women, in centuries past, did not feature prominently in public life; nevertheless, the wealthy attended many prestigious social events that warranted both splendid suits and dresses. Women’s dress fashions were influenced in some part by the avant-gardestyles of French tailors, however, dressmaking in London gradually became more refined, more stylish and at times most daring.The lady’s dress has seen many changes in style over numerous decades, from high waistbands, ankle-length skirts and flowing gowns to sleek, clinging movie star masterpieces, it seemed as though all styling possibilities had been exhausted … then along came the miniskirt!
