STEAMPUNK FASHION by Victorian Woman

What is steampunk? Steampunk is a literary genre, a field of science fiction called "Uchronia" (a fiction that permits us to imagine what would be the world if a past event had a different outcome; a time gap, an alternative version of history). Steampunk is strongly linked to the Victorian Era and the fantastic world of Steampunk is linked to the 19ème century industrial revolution. That's why the setting is made of steam machines, Victorian clothes, ancient cars mixed up with anachronic element such as computers, new technologies and machines, genetic engineering, apocalyptic setting.
It expanded for many years to fashion, design, art, cinema...
You can see that kind of elements in my designs: Victorian inspiration, luxury fabrics, with laces and gemstones mixed with watch mechanism, leather, gears, chains, clock patterns.
