So, without further delay, let us offer you a brief about the Sumerian fashion.
A Glimpse of Ancient Sumerian Fashion
Since you are going to check out the ancient Sumerian fashion in the Sumerian Night Fashion Show, you need to know that, knee-length skirts were the typical piece of clothing that was worn by both men and women in ancient Sumer. For manufacturing the skirts, they used sheep hide where the exterior portions displayed clutters of wool and the interiors were skins. These skirts were worn with big pins. Ancient Sumerians depended on materials which were very easily available.
The Sumerian men at one point wore woolen kilts for covering up the lower bodies. With time, their attires evolved into something much more elaborate. It changed into lengthy clothing, almost like a drape which started from the lower legs all the way up to their shoulders. For summer seasons, these drape like clothes were created with soft flax, and for the winter, these clothes were made with wool. To make the clothes more fashionable, the borders of these coverings had ornamental trimmings.
The Sumerian female were dressed in lengthy coverings. A single arm and one side of the shoulder was visible. Most of the times, the left arms were hidden and the clothing covered their bodies all the way down to their ankles. The Sumerian women’s dresses were created in such a way that closely outlined their physiques. Some of the ancient Sumerian clothing designs were created by sewing animal hides but the fleece was not removed. The fleece was eliminated when ‘weaving’ became a common practice.
It was necessary for the Priestesses to emulate the older looks and they wore specially produced wool apparels that were designed in older styles. By the end of the Sumerian rule, both men and women wore skirts and shawls that were decorated with fringe. The styles of those skirts are reintroduced in the form of draping which you will find in different runway shows of Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Victoria Beckham.
