Our costumes

 

For many years, costume research has been one of our priorities. Until now, we have been able to reproduce about fifteen styles from the Vannes region ranging over the period 1840 - 1940. Research starts mainly with photos, then you have to situate yourself in the historical context to be able to recreate the styles of the day. The various styles worn by the Circle dansers are shown below with photos and explanatory details. For more details click on the picture
