Got to know about the changes in fashion over time and the history behind the change in fashion. Thus I am here to share with you all the information that I have gathered. Hope you like it😊

FASHION REVOLUTION 1910.

Change in fashion during World War I were dictated more by necessity than by fashion. As more and more women entered the workforce, they demanded clothes that were better suited to their new activities. Women adopted practical working clothes and the sometimes wore uniform, overall and trousers. A new monochrome look emerged that was unfamiliar to young women in comfortable circumstances. People were dressing less extravagantly due to funds being put towards the war effort. The Art Deco movement began to emerge at this time.

Fashion Revolution 1920.

The 1920’s also known as the jazz era. This era is characterised by two distinct periods. In the early part of the decade, change was slow as many were reluctant to adopt new style and during 1925 the public passionately embraced the style associated with the Roaring Twenties. Face, figure, posture and grooming had become important fashion factors in addition to clothing. In this era cosmetics became a mojor industry. The 1920 is the decade in which fashion entered the modern era.

Fashion Revolution 1930.

The Great depression took its toll on the 1930’s womenswear, due to

World War II. This greatly affected the fashion of women dressed during the era. Wartime restrictions on the number of new clothes that people bought and the amount of fabric that clothing manufactures could use. The shirtwaist dress, an all purpose garment also emerged during the 1930’s.

Fashion Revolution 1940.

In 1942, as materials and suppliers were reserved for the war economy, the government issued limitation which imposed specific guidelines for manufactured garments and home sewing patterns in order to limit the amount of fabric and notion used. Colors also became more limited as the chemical normally used in dyes were requisitioned for the war industry. The scarcity of fabric also fostered creativity and designers came up with new styles.

Fashion Revolution 1950.

1950’s took a big step back, especially for women. Women began to gain an independence that was rare before the war. They left their homes to work in offices and factories, earning and managing their own money. Clothing was heavily restricted throughout and just after the war everything from the length of skirts to the size of collars was regulated.

Fashion Revolution 1960.

The 1960’s fashion revolution explored the dramatic impact of youth culture on fashion during this era. Couture and high fashion ready-to-wear were also influenced by youthquake style. They saw the financial and creative potential in cultivating a younger market and they began designing mini skirts and pantsuits as well as opening their own ready to wear boutiques. The end of the decade saw the influence of the Hippies whose eclectic mix of secondhand and ethnic dress was also translated into mass market and high fashion.

Fashion Revolution 1970.

Early 1970 fashion was a fun era. It culminated some of the best element of the 60’s and perfected and exaggerated them. Some of the best clothing produced in the 1970’s perfectly blended the mods with hippes. There is one common theme throughout fashion in the 1970 pants were tight fitting and it is probably the first full decade in which women could be seen wearing pants in every walk of life.

Fashion Revolution 1980.

The early 80’s were somewhat subdued in color, where we see alot of brown, yellow, tans and orange. Blocky shapes were every where women’s clothing in 1980 ran the gamut from conservation to opulent fantasy. Velvet was popular around the clock and women wore lace with leather. Popular colors included neon, plum, gold and bright wines. Women wanted garments that empower them and make them look more masculine in shape, thus making the women appear to be more capable of higher level tasks and seem professional.

Fashion Revolution 1990.

1990’s was generally loose fitting and colorful. In the mid 90’s, industrial and military styles crept into mainstream fashion. Camouflage pants were ironically worn by anti war protesters. By the late 90’s rave culture swept through and people were looking for clothes that were more glamorous again. Interestingly enough, late 90’s clothing styles are not too drastically different than they are today.

Fashion Revolution 2000.

In the 2000’s people around the world became more concerned about climate change and environmental issues. At the start of 2000’s fashion was influenced by technology. Metallic fabrics and futuristic styles were popular. Natural fabrics, namely organic cotton and hemp became popular. Conflicts in the Middle East inspired military uniform styles. Pirate boots, military jackets with military decorations and anchor symbols are important parts of this style.

THAT’S ALL FOR TODAY. HOPE YOU LIKED IT.
