A piece of fashion history: Turkish old costumes

Visiting the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, we've discovered an entire section dedicated to Turkish costumes. There were displayed ceremonial sultan's robes, women's outfits and cute children clothes.

It was not allowed to take pictures (i honestly don't understand why, everywhere else in the palace you were allowed), but me and my hb managed to take one picture each.

The first one (above) seems to me a little bit similar to Chinese kimonos (because of the front stitches), but the second one is made of a gorgeous coral silk.
