Fashion plates are illustrations (typically engravings), sometimes hand-colored, of fashionable clothing, distributed individually or incorporated into magazines.

Please create subcategories for individual fashion publications and move the fashion plates into their appropriate subcategories. Generally, this category should only contain fashion plates whose source magazine has not yet been identified.

Also, please place a default sort on images with the year and month where known, e.g., {{DEFAULTSORT:1852}} or {{DEFAULTSORT:1852-05}}

Feel free to create further subcategories or additional organizational schema based on other criteria, e.g., segregating images drawn later to illustrate fashions of the past from contemporaneous images, or organizing by time period, location, etc. Be bold! And have fun!
