Marie Antoinette was not always a slave to fashion; her girlhood was spent riding and hunting. Marriage, and her mother, changed her. Eventually she began to order clothes from the fashion house of Rose Bertin. While her husband built up debt by helping to finance the American Revolution, Marie did the same with her wardrobe. It came to 300 new dresses a year. And it wasn't only dresses; her perfumes from Jean-Louis Fargeon and her parties gave her the nickname "Madame Deficit."
