Toga

   A toga is a large rectangular piece of fabric that is wrapped around the body and crosses over one shoulder. Although this garment was made popular by the early Romans in the period of 509-27 B.C.E., it was actually the Etruscans (750-200 B.C.E) who created the fashion look. Designers throughout the world often refer to this design concept for their collection.
