The history of applying ornamentations to clothes and dresses in Iran dates back to Pre-Islamic era. With appearance of Islam, however, the kind and material of ornamentations, especially for men, changed. The intensity of this change, depending on different social, cultural, political and economic con-ditions in each historical era has been different. Among the various historical eras, art in Qajar era was mainly at the service of Royalties. In fact, they wore ornamented clothes and dresses in order to draw attention to their status. In other words, ornamentations in Qajar era were more used as a social and wealth indicator than aesthetic purposes. In Qajar era, clothes and dresses, in addition to their own attachments, were adorned with additional ornamenta-tions in different ways. The ornamentations included armbands, medallions, buttons crests strips watches etc. Altogethers under the influnec of western art, the art in Qajar era underwent evolution in terms of design and pro-duction. However, from the end of Qajar era on, this impressionability, both from the aspect of clothing and of associated decorations, experienced a state of confusion. This study aimed to study this extreme impressionability.
