Catherine Pavlovna court dress front (Pavlovsk Museum, Pavlovsk Russia)

The Pavlovsk Museum Site is here. Pavlovsk is located south of St. Petersburg between the M-10 and M-11.

This court dress of Catherine's shows the ideological conflict against the French Revolution extending to fashion with the continued use of panniers. The UK was likewise resisting the new styles, at least for court dress.
