Fashion is a cultural product that responds to the lifestyle and mentality of the period in question. The poet Mallarmé defined fashion as “the goddess of appearances”, emphasising the idea that we become aware of things at first glance, from the outside and through their visual aspect.

Zurbarán represents an idealised type of fashion, transforming his female saints into queens. Throughout the 19th century, clothing was designed to socially define women as future wives and mothers. However, in the early years of the 20th century female fashion reflected a new attitude with regard to women’s role in society.
