We All Need Fashion #75: Baroque style!!!

Art nerd alert: you're about to have a mini factoid bomb dropped on your brain. Cease reading if you're opposed to learning.

Baroque style arose in Rome at the beginning of the 17th century as the Renaissance and Mannerist styles were fading. It soon became very popular with the Roman Catholic Church and is characterized by rich bold colors, drama and grandeur. I've personally never had the opportunity to study Italian baroque in depth yet but every art student worth their salt knows Bernini. His architecture and sculpture are some of the movement's finest standouts and you better believe I'll be checking off seeing his works on my art history bucket list!

As far as this challenge goes, a baroque theme was a dream come true because, let's face it, nothing is more fun in fashion than drama and opulence! Utterly fantastic choice Malu82
