Per Mano Isabel Maria


As the name suggests, this will be a website of projects undertaken by Isabel Maria del Aguila.

Isabel Maria's primary passion is late 16th Century Spanish gowns of the nobility, and she finds all manner of excuses to wear them (along with all the associated accoutrements). She is particularly fond of her mongil trancado (back-laced gown, pictured below) and white satin saya entera, but her mix'n'match middle-class wardrobe is just so practical...

A member of the Order of the Laurel in the Society for Creative Anachronism (or SCA), Isabel Maria was recognised for her endeavours in the field of sartorial arts.

As you might expect, this website primarily reflects those interests: clothing, accessories and jewellery. However, expect forays into camp furniture, heraldic display and easy to cook food etc. (Occasional side-trips into various types of dance and nineteenth century costuming might also appear from time to time.)

Isabel Maria's Arms: per chevron vert and gules, a chevron between two fleur de dys and an eagle, or Isabel Maria resides in the Barony of Southron Gaard, which lies within the bounds of the Kingdom of Lochac.

Over the years, Isabel Maria has stewarded numerous events and held various offices for both the Barony and former College of Reannag Fhara. She previously served as Baroness of Southron Gaard alongside Oswyn Carolus.

She is also a member of the long standing household, Hous Amberherthe and was apprenticed to Meistern Christian Baier until her elevation.

At Canterbury Faire AS XXXXVIII, Isabel Maria was absolutely delighted to welcome two very talented apprentices. While Lady Ydeneya de Baillencourt continues her journey with Isabel Maria, Ginevra Isabella di Serafino Visconti has been released from her apprenticeship on the occasion of her investiture as Baroness of Southron Gaard.
