Chinese styles of court dress spread early on to Korea and Japan, aided by the prestige of Chinese civilization.
The later invasions must have substantially altered the clothing of the time, but no records survive; it was not until the habit of burying the dead replaced the Roman custom of cremation, and until some political stability appeared, that any examples of dress were preserved.
The catalyst for the change in clothing that marks the division between the early Middle Ages and the Romanesque period was the first of the Crusades, which began in 1095.
