‘Amalia’ costume Athens, Attica. Late 19th c. © Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation. The urban costume of the Peloponnese spread to other parts of Greece after 1837, when Amalia, the first Queen of Greece, adopted it as the official court dress, combining the Biedermeier style with the local kavádi and zipoúni. The dress is made of taffeta, with an open bodice to show the neck opening of the chemise. The kondogoúni is of velvet, gold-embroidered and very close-fitting. The cap is a kalpak.
