Rachel Lorenz, aka the Contessa, has been fascinated by medieval and Renaissance life since she was old enough to put on an old lace tablecloth and make-pretend "the olden days". Since then, she has traveled the world studying extant medieval garments, medieval art and academic publications on medieval fashion, leaving a trail of slaughtered fabric in the wake of creative historical fashion exploration.
