Sin - Everything began when the senior lady Fath Ali Shah hosted a party and invited Elizabeth McNeill, the wife of John McNeill, to attend this party.

According to the researcher, the collision with the fashion of Europe dates back to the early nineteenth century, when the Qajar kings sought to develop diplomatic relations with the European powers, creating a court in Tehran. Before the Qajar period, the knowledge of European clothing was limited to Iranian women. Most Europeans - diplomats, soldiers, traders - were men in the capital of Esfahan, the Safavids.
Naturally, they were wearing European clothes, but when they needed to dress the Iranians. European women's clothing was recognized through imported images of fashionable beauties. The images were simultaneously captured by Iranian artists who specialize in portraying their customers' albums.

The first Iranian-European fashion designer
Fashion came to Iran in the late-Qajar European style. During the reign of Nasser-al-Din Shah, this issue was facilitated by the influence of his elderly daughter Taajsalethan, who was educated and supported by the freedom of Iranian women. So that can be considered the first fashion designer of Iranian-European fashion. In his memoirs, he spoke of clothes that were in the style and colors of the European manifestation. It was also painted around the 1900s with a tight-fitting tight-fitting European tuxedo dress.

Changes in traditional clothes were gradually formed from the middle of the nineteenth century, featuring shorter trousers, and skirts of different size and thickness, worn on tight pants or thin socks. The introduction of European dresses to women was gradual and began in the late nineteenth century, including adaptation to traditional style.
For example, the coats were closed with the button and the V-shaped collar was shaped. Long suits with tight waists and worsted skirts underneath the coat. The overcoats were worn on coats, and sometimes the riddles of the European design used instead of tents in outfit.

Nasiruddin Shah's passion for fashion
Nasseruddin Shah actively encouraged the wearing of European clothes. His daughter, Taajsaletaneh, wrote that Nasser-al-Din Shah had told her - when she was still a kid - to wear European dresses, preferably pink and white.

The size of skirts varied in traditional dresses until they were short and very thick in the 1860s. Nasir al-Din Shah is likely to affect the shape and size of these skirts. During his first visit to Europe in 1873, he admired the ballet dancers in Paris and introduced the model to court women in return.

The most elite Qajar women
The most influential fashion protagonists among women in the Qur'an court directly had kinship with the Shah, so they were at the highest social level. The world's property, the mother of Nasser-al-Din Shah, wore traditional clothes of great beauty and chose the best of silk and velvet for his torso and trousers. Shell was made of pearls and diamonds, while she covered a large number of bracelets and necklaces, arms and neck. Subsequently, the daughter of Nasser-al-Din Shah admired the great French princess Talesolante, wearing European fashion dresses from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
The response to these changes largely varied depending on the husbands' attitude towards the education of women and European rules. Conservative men could accept change in clothes, but they persisted in persisting in women to stay at home and not pursue their profession. The Tajalsalatnaya, who enjoyed a wealth of influence, was unconditionally opposed to her husband, as she dressed the European as a sign of liberation and worked for the release of Iranian women.
