Lords and Ladies. Counts and Countesses. Dukes and Duchesses. Britain of the early 20th century was rich in noble tradition and sumptuous style…and it still is today. Those elaborate and elegant fashions of the day are given eye-catching tribute in the most popular and successful British period drama to grace television screens in a long time, Downton Abbey.
