Change Please

Around the time of the French Revolution there was an extreme shift away from all things that were commonly worn by the nobility. The commoners began to riot and persecute the rich for their form of dress. Instead of standing up against the commoners the nobles joined in the riots. There began to seem to be no distinction between classes. Tailors would rather be working for the lowest class than the royals and all forms of clothing that were common to the upper class, such as lace, were looked down upon. Decorations were even taken down from stores that were considered loyal to the monarchy. Marie Antoinette began to interact with her own people less because she was afraid them.  I took a picture of the flag from the American Revolution because this revolution was also marked by a movement toward all things American and a rejection of British clothing.
