WHAT WAS THE GRAND TOUR?

The Grand Tour was an extended vacation that young British aristocratic nobles took throughout Europe.  It was at the height of its popularity in the 18th & early 19th centuries.  Although this was an exclusively male pastime, at the ARISTO event, and in keeping with 21st century equality, we encourage designs for all genders/species.   As described on the Wikipedia page:

The primary value of the Grand Tour, it was believed, lay in the exposure both to the cultural legacy of classical antiquity and the Renaissance, and to the aristocratic and fashionably polite society of the European continent. In addition, it provided the only opportunity to view specific works of art, and possibly the only chance to hear certain music. A Grand Tour could last from several months to several years.

Anything reminiscent of the luxury and excess that was a hallmark of the Grand Tour, maybe a hint of the Renaissance, all of these ideas are the background for THE GRAND TOUR.  Designers’ exclusive items should be based around this idea.  Any other items sold can be non-themed as long as the exclusive(s) are thematic.
