Russia: History of Dress

Kokoshnik - Wikipedia

The kokoshnik tradition has existed since the 10th century in the ancient Russian city Veliky Novgorod. It is still to this day an important feature of Russian dance ensembles and folk culture and inspired the Kokoshnik style of architecture. Historically a kokoshnik [2] is a headdress worn by married women, though maidens also wore a headdress very similar to a kokoshnik, but open in the back, named a povyazka. While in the past kokoshnik styles varied greatly, currently a kokoshnik is generally associated with a tall, nimbus or crest shaped headdress which is tied at the back of the head with long thick ribbons in a large bow. The crest can be embroidered with pearls and goldwork or simple applique, usually using plant and flower motifs. The forehead area is frequently decorated with pearl netting. While wearing a kokoshnik the woman usually wears her hair in a plait.

Actual specimens of Russian dress from early Russian history and even from the ninth to the thirteenth centuries had not been preserved.

The common element was multiple layers of fabrics. He introduced a law that fined anyone who entered the city in traditional national clothes, as well as anyone with a beard.
