Question 1 of 10
1. Dear Mickey,
I'm sorry that I left so suddenly but The Doctor urgently needed to go to a meeting on Sirius IV. Unfortunately The Tardis has landed sometime in Earth's past. The nobles and aristocracy, as well as Her Majesty the Queen wear clothes with a large ruffle around the neck. Can you tell me where we are?
Love,
Rose
Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. Dear Mickey,
Once again the Tardis has failed to get to Sirius IV. This time we are in a city built on seven hills beside a river where the main buildings are made of marble. The people in the busy streets are wearing simple tunics, shorter ones for the men and some wear a long coloured piece of material which wraps around their body and is then thrown over the shoulder. Can you guess where we have landed?
Love,
Rose
Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. Dear Mickey,
This is so frustrating. We are still on earth but much closer to our own time. Some young people on the streets are dressed very strangely. They have spiked hair dyed in strange colours, torn jeans and t-shirts with anarchic messages, some even have safety pins in their ears or other parts of their bodies. What is this style called?
Love,
Rose
Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. Dear Mickey,
We still have not reached our destination. We are on earth but far from Europe. Once again we have travelled back in time to a land where the people are nomads, travelling across the desert with their five main domestic animals. The most outstanding feature of their wardrobe is their hats. They come in an incredible number of styles and colours. Do you know where we are?
Love,
Rose
Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. Dear Mickey,
The time is 1947 and we are in the beautiful city of Paris. The Tardis landed near a fashion house so I popped in while the Doctor made a few adjustments to The Tardis. Everyone was excited because the designer there had come out with the "New Look". Do you know the name of this famous designer?
Love,
Rose.
Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. Dear Mickey
I despair of ever getting to Sirius IV. The Tardis has completely malfunctioned this time. We seem to be some time around the 1400s and the women are wearing these weird things called a hennin. Do you know what this is?
Love,
Rose
Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. Dear Mickey
I can't believe this, we are definitely back in Paris again . Mind you, it's worth being here at the moment if only to see what the women are wearing. I can tell from the cars that we are in the 1920s but the clothes the women are wearing look almost modern! Fantastic, lots of jersey, short hair, gorgeous costume jewellery, sporty look - and I'm sure I recognise the scent lots of them are wearing. I think it's one that Marilyn Monroe used to wear.
I'm going to have to ask who the designer is - unless you can tell me.
Much love
Rose xx
Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. Oh Mickey, here we go again and I'm getting dizzy with all this dashing about between centuries. I recognise the period we are in at the moment because it reminds me of those Jane Austen adaptations on telly. The womens' clothes are so pretty, quite plain really and often made of muslin, but it's the men who are really catching my eye. They seem to have stopped wearing those pantaloon things with stockings and started wearing long trousers. The coats and shirts have gone very plain and elegant with excellent tailoring, and the neck-cloths are tied in all sorts of fantastic knots. Have you got any idea who started this trend?

Love Rose x
Hint


Question 9 of 10
9. Dear Mickey
Once again we have missed Sirius IV by a mere million miles or so and are in London. The women are wearing the most beautiful dresses, but the skirts are so wide they have to be supported by a metal or whalebone hoop. What was this style called?
All my love
Rose
Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. Dear Mickey
The Doctor has decided to give up on Sirius IV and we are going dancing instead. We are back in the 1920s, only we are in America this time, in what was called the "Roaring Twenties". The women are so smart with their fringed, low-waisted, just above the knee dresses and bobbed hair. What were these ladies commonly known as?
Hope to see you soon
Rose

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Dear Mickey, I'm sorry that I left so suddenly but The Doctor urgently needed to go to a meeting on Sirius IV. Unfortunately The Tardis has landed sometime in Earth's past. The nobles and aristocracy, as well as Her Majesty the Queen wear clothes with a large ruffle around the neck. Can you tell me where we are? Love, Rose

Answer: Elizabethan England

In Elizabethan times the clothes you wore were governed by strict rules, the Sumptuary Laws, eg only royalty could have ermine trimmings on their robes while nobles were allowed to have fox or otter fur. The colours and types of fabrics that could be worn by each level of society were mandated and made ones status easily identifiable.

The Elizabethan lady wore many layers starting with the chemise and including hose, a bodice, farthingale, stomacher and petticoat while over that came the gown, separate sleeves, ruff, cloak shoes and hat. Men also wore layers of clothes, a shirt, stockings or hose, a codpiece, and a corset over which came the doublet, separate sleeves, breeches, a belt, and a ruff, cloak shoes and hat.

While men's hair was usually worn short and unadorned women had elaborate swept up styles with women seeking to make their hair like that of the queen, even to the extent of dyeing it with a combination of saffron, cumin seed, celandine and oil.
2. Dear Mickey, Once again the Tardis has failed to get to Sirius IV. This time we are in a city built on seven hills beside a river where the main buildings are made of marble. The people in the busy streets are wearing simple tunics, shorter ones for the men and some wear a long coloured piece of material which wraps around their body and is then thrown over the shoulder. Can you guess where we have landed? Love, Rose

Answer: Ancient Rome

Roman clothes were similar to those of Greece but there were differences. Wool was the main material although linen was worn. Underclothes, usually of fine linen, consisted of a loincloth, while women could also wear a simple brassiere which was just a tightly wrapped band of material which was worn either under or over the clothing. Men's tunics were sleeveless and about knee length while women's were longer and could have sleeves. Bands of colour, purple for highly ranked citizens, denoted status.

In cold weather more than one tunic was worn. Over this men wore the toga, a long piece of wool thrown over one shoulder. It could only be worn by Roman citizens. Originally white was the colour worn by both sexes but women soon began to wear coloured clothes.

Their outer garment was called a stola and was often shorter to display the tunic beneath. The wealthiest women sometimes had gowns made of richly coloured silks.

They have spiked hair dyed in strange colours, torn jeans and t-shirts with anarchic messages, some even have safety pins in their ears or other parts of their bodies. What is this style called? Love, Rose

Answer: Punk

While punk styles varied in different countries, the basic idea was to be anti-establishment and to shock. The clothing could look ragged and unkempt but a lot of time went into styling the elaborate shaved and spiked hair, decorating jackets with multiple studs or other decorations and to creating a whole image. Doc Martens or work boots were standard shoes for both sexes while girls wore fishnets stockings, often ripped. Dog collars, sometimes of spiked metal, were a common accessory as were wrists bands of similar styles.
4. Dear Mickey, We still have not reached our destination. We are on earth but far from Europe. Once again we have travelled back in time to a land where the people are nomads, travelling across the desert with their five main domestic animals. The most outstanding feature of their wardrobe is their hats. They come in an incredible number of styles and colours. Do you know where we are? Love, Rose

Answer: Mongolia

Mongolian headware was so varied because there were styles for all ages and all occasions eg the cone shaped hat which had 32 stitches symbolising unification of the 32 tribes of Mongolia. Red plush hats with upturned brims and topknots were worn by the middle aged of both sexes. Womens hats for special occasions were elaborately decorated possibly with silver bells, pearls and precious stones.

The Del was the one-pieced tunic which was made in a distinctive style for each ethnic grouping. Everyday Del were in plain colours but the holiday Del could be blue, claret or green and was worn with a long silk sash. Boots with upturned toes are worn and thick felt socks were added in winter.
5. Dear Mickey, The time is 1947 and we are in the beautiful city of Paris. The Tardis landed near a fashion house so I popped in while the Doctor made a few adjustments to The Tardis. Everyone was excited because the designer there had come out with the "New Look". Do you know the name of this famous designer? Love, Rose.

Answer: Dior

After World War II Christian Dior thought that women were tired of uniforms and plain clothes. His new designs were aimed at making women feel more feminine. His clothes had fitted waists, with beautifully pleated or tucked bodices. The skirts were full or barrel-shaped coming in at the knees.

After the square-shaped shoulders of the war era, Dior brought back the sloping shoulders of pre-war fashions or even went back to the dropped shoulders of early Victorian times. To achieve the hourglass figure needed to wear this style Dior created the "waspie" a kind of small corset that could, it is said, take five inches from the waist.

In addition his clothes had padded hips to help the full skirts stand out. Skirts were long, about twelve inches from the ground, as there was no longer any need to conserve material for the war effort.

This rather impractical style did not last past Dior's death in 1957.
6. Dear Mickey I despair of ever getting to Sirius IV. The Tardis has completely malfunctioned this time. We seem to be some time around the 1400s and the women are wearing these weird things called a hennin. Do you know what this is? Love, Rose

Answer: A headdress

The hennin is the cone or steeple shape headdress worn by medieval women of fashion. They were very popular in France as well as northern Europe, especially Hungary and Poland. They were also seen in England, especially as court dress. The hennin was worn sloping backwards at an angle, and often had some form of drapery coming from it. The hair was usually hidden inside it.
This form of head wear has been adopted by film makers and is now the stereotype for medieval wear portrayed in films.
7. Dear Mickey I can't believe this, we are definitely back in Paris again . Mind you, it's worth being here at the moment if only to see what the women are wearing. I can tell from the cars that we are in the 1920s but the clothes the women are wearing look almost modern!

I'm going to have to ask who the designer is - unless you can tell me. Much love Rose xx

Answer: Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel revolutionised the way that women dressed. She wanted women to have the freedom to move, and her clothes were made of easy fabrics such as jersey that moved and stretched and draped well. She introduced sporty-looking clothes, and the 'Little Black Dress', a staple in every woman's wardrobe, was her invention.
Chanel also designed handbags and hats and accessories, and in 1921 launched her first and greatest perfume, 'Chanel No 5'. This is the scent that Marilyn Monroe always wore. When asked what she wore in bed, Marilyn reputedly answered 'Chanel No 5'.

Answer: Beau Brummell

Brummell was the great leader of fashion during the Regency period. He was referred to as a 'Dandy', and was fastidious about every aspect of his appearance. He was known for cleaning his teeth and bathing - not always a priority at this time - and was said to get the high shine on his boots by cleaning them with Champagne.
Inevitably, a life of extravagant spending on clothes and nightly gambling sessions left him penniless and eventually he fled to France to escape his creditors.
9. Dear Mickey Once again we have missed Sirius IV by a mere million miles or so and are in London. The women are wearing the most beautiful dresses, but the skirts are so wide they have to be supported by a metal or whalebone hoop. What was this style called? All my love Rose

Answer: Crinoline

In the mid 1800s skirts grew wider and wider. At first they were supported with a bustle, then stiffened petticoats, but eventually they grew too wide for this support and the cage crinoline was invented. The great advantage of this over several stiffened petticoats was lightness and freedom of movement. Only one or two petticoats were required to stop the outline of the cage showing, and with everything held by the cage there were no entangling garments round the legs.

At the height of the fashion skirts had grown to widths of around six feet, which led to regular problems arising with getting through doors and in and out of the horse drawn coaches of the day.
10. Dear Mickey The Doctor has decided to give up on Sirius IV and we are going dancing instead. We are back in the 1920s, only we are in America this time, in what was called the "Roaring Twenties". The women are so smart with their fringed, low-waisted, just above the knee dresses and bobbed hair. What were these ladies commonly known as? Hope to see you soon Rose

Answer: Flappers

Flappers cut their hair short, drove cars, smoked, drank and listened to jazz. They had jobs, and openly challenged the Victorian and Edwardian female roles.
They had a style all of their own. Their skirts were shorter than had been seen before, waist lines were dropped, they threw off the corsets beloved of their mothers and grandmothers. They became associated with dances such as the Charleston and the Black Bottom. Writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald popularised both their life style and fashion.
