design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Fashion is a term commonly used to describe a style of clothing worn by most of people of a country.
The changing styles show us about history and the time period. The cultural and social changes are always reflected and are very evident in fashion. Fashion is more than just designers and clothing. It reflects on what people think, what they value and how they live.
The first fashion designer who was not just a dressmaker was was Charles Frederick Worth (English designer) in 1825. Worth's success was such that he was able to dictate to his customers what they should wear.Throughout the 20th century, all high fashion originated, basically in Paris and the United Knigdom. Fashion magazines from other countries sent editors to the Paris fashion shows.
1820'S-1920'S: Rise of Fashion
The early 1900s marked the rise of fashion in Paris and the United Kingdom. Women of the upper classes converted the Parisian designs into the styles that then the whole world started using. Corsets and full skirts enhanced unnatural curves, and hats grew out of control.
1920's: roaring twenties
By the end of World War I , women were used to their freedom and independence, and their clothing reflected it. They maintained "masculinity" with loose, shapeless fits and flattened busts. Corsets became a thing of the past.
1930's-1940's: the Great Depression
The Great Depression arrived, and most of the people escaped from it and went to Hollywood. The movies became the new glamorous medium for fashion.Once World War II was on the way, clothes became very restrained, cloth was severely rationed, and uniforms were commonly used in public.
1950's: the postwar age
Once World War II ended, newcomer designer such as Christian Dior rebelled against the crash of the time and produced extravagant designs of a fitted jackets with very small waists and long skirts using ten to eighty yards of fabric.
1960's: the teen age
This was a time in which teenagers were introduced into fashion and into society in general. The young ones were the leaders of the sixties.
Fashion icons included Jackie Kennedy and the supermodel Twiggy. Men wanted to dress like the Beatles.

1970's: Disco fever
The increased of traveling meant that fashion became more global.The disco dance fever lead to increasing use of polyester, which was ideal for creating tight, stretchy clothing that shone under disco lighting.
1980's: the revolution of pop stars
People saw designer brands as symbols of wealth. Increased use of credit cards encouraged spending.
The creation of MTV revolutionized the music industry by turning musicians into stars who had the power to influence a lot style and fashion.

1990's: minimalism
During this decade, fashion became more comfortable and less extravagant.In contrast to the excessive color palette of the eighties, 1990s style went more towards a more aesthetic style with lots of black and neutral colors. The fashion industry blossomed in the United States, where Calvin Klein used extravagant sexual advertisements to shock a nation.
2000's: futuristic ideas
This decade is strong evidence that fashion is cyclical. The fashion of this decade has been a mixture of futuristic ideas and past styles.Current flared jeans are toned-down versions of bell-bottoms. Vintage-inspired clothes have become popular. The hippie look has come back in fashion thanks to celebrities like the Olsen twins.
The 1920's was the decade in which fashion started entering the modern era. It was the decade people started abandoning the conservative and restricted styles of the past decades. Everybody started using more comfortable athletic, and informal looks. New music and dances came on the scene. There was a revolution in almost every aspect of human activities, and fashion wasn't the exception.
Fashion and clothes changed with women's changing role in society. Although women of a certain age continued to wear conservative dresses, younger women marked the change of fashion.
Teenagers and young women started using:
tubular dresses with a gorgeous silhouette
short skirts
low heels
long and inflated dresses
the bust line was very marked by all dresses
During the early twenties cream or ivory colored face powder was used by most women. From the middle of the twenties, lips were colored in deep red, deep brownish reds, and orange. Eyes were held quite dark. To get this effect the whole eye was edged with a black eyeliner.
Throughout the decade, men wore short suit jackets, the old long jackets being used merely for formal occasions. In the early 1920s, men's fashion was characterized by extremely high-waisted jackets, often worn with belts. Lapels on suit jackets were not very wide as they tended to be buttoned up high.Men’s fashion also became less regimented and formal. Casual-wear for men often included knickers, short pants that came to the knee. Men's hats were usually worn depending on their class, with upper class citizens usually wearing top hats. Middle class men wore either a bowler hat. Working-class men wore a standard newsboy cap or a flat cap.
For both women's fashion and American culture, the 1920s was a transformation decade. It was the decade in which women won the right to vote, the decade of Prohibition, the Harlem Renaissance, and tremendous middle-class affluence. It was also the decade of Lindy Hop and of the Flapper. Fashion of this decade influenced a lot in America´s culture, because of the changing role of women in life and in society. Fashion of the 1920's influenced mostly in women of that time because of the ideas of freedom and independence for women, those ideas were reflected on people's, majorly in women´s clothes.
