Modern and Old Costume in Turkey Featured Print

Modern and Old Costume in Turkey

Soon after Ataturk took over in Turkey in the 1920s, there was liberation by women from the old modes of dress. Instead of impenetrable veils, they wore lighter, thinner veils. It was a move to modernisation and more Western thought away from heavy Orientalism. Date: circa 1920s
