Transcript of Japanese fashion

Japanese Fashion of the Past and the Future Japanese history isnt descriptive about there fashion. It only goes back to the samauri, where they wore mostly only Hakamas, Kimonos, Hanfu, and patterns like Kuratomesode, Tuskesage, Edo Komom, and Susahiki, the thing is back in ancient time these patterns were brought to more simple designs then the ones of today. That is only because they were going for a look that was simle and not hard to remember. Also they wanted to strike fears into the hearts of fows when wearing a Hakama in battle. The kimono on they other hand was made for when women would go out to the store or to a wedding. In other words to look pretty. What was the first type of japanese clothing? Japanese's clothes have changed, but some are similar to the traditional clothing. Also some people of japan's people still wear traditional clothing. One of the types of clothing is the Hakama.According to Kashmira , Lad" This type of japanese traditional clothing consists of a wide pleated skirt. Today, men as well as women wear the hakama, but in the earlier days, the hakama was worn only by men. In ancient times, the hakama was worn by samurai so that the opponent would not be able to see the footwork.A hakama has around 7 plates, which are a repessentation of certain virtues. These are known to hold a lot of importance for the samurai. The men and women's hakama are also found in many varictics today." That is only one of the clothing that Kashmira, Lad has sujested. There is also the kimono. Kashmira, Lad says "The word kimono actually referred to all types of clothing. It also remains to be the national costume of clothing of Japan. Some of the earliest designs of the kimono were hugely influenced by the Hunfu, which is a part of chinese clothing. Durning the 8th century, chinese fashion trends gained popularity amongst the Japanese. The kimono turned into a stylish version durning Japan's Heian period. Over the years, one could see visible changes in the design of the kimono. This form of Japanese traditional clothing is always worn by women and particularly for speacial accosions. Although the Japanese tradition unmarried women wear specific style of the kimono, which is called the fuisade. Today kimonos come in a variety of styles and forms. One can also see designs such as Kurotamesode [ mostly for married women], Tsukesage [ modest version of an elaborne kimono], Edo Komom [ it has tiny dots all over it], Susahiki [ worn by the Geishas or stage performers] ect." Sadly Japan's traditions are disapearing. Today you see some similar designs from old fashions, but most people now wear mini skirts, shirt dresses, dresses, leggings, layered tops ballon skhirts, empire babydoll dresses, and platform shoes. Only rarely you will see kimono's, but soon you will never see them unless you get on the internet. Also the fact that they barely have a record of there fashion's pass does not help the future at remembering or finding information on there past. Which also means that if they were lost in the future there would be barely any way of knowing. What are some of japans clothing? Trends in Japan are mostly in my opion are clothes that look like halloween costumes. They are way different in many ways. The only simialitiys are some women still wear kimono robes with everyday wear. Besides the occusional himero and hakamas you see no traditional clothing to compare. Unless you look real close to the modern clothing that are supost to copy in a different kind of way the style commonly known as the kimono. As how they look most of them are two things. Either very bolkie or very tight on the body. Of coarse all the clothes have there own uniqee designs and maybe a few simularites in patterns or color. In any case they are almost no were near any of the clothes seen in the beaty of Japan's past. What do trends look like today and do they look anything like traditional clothing? The End
