Fashion History - Mourning Dress - Black Clothing Worn During Bereavement

Queen Victoria and Children in Mourning Dress ~ Queen Victoria had a huge influence on the fashions of the mid to late 1800's. After the death of her husband, Prince Albert in 1861, Queen Victoria wore black clothing until her own death in 1901. During Victorian times, the type of mourning dress and the length of time one wore it was circumscribed by etiquette instead of sumtuary laws. A widow wore mourning dress for 2 1/2 years.
