Title: The Future of Fashion

The Future of Fashion
  • Fashion is defined in the dictionary as the
  • latest and most admired style in clothes and
  • cosmetics and behavior. Over the years fashion
  • has evolved through many phases and has
  • changed greatly. The future of fashion will
  • Only bring about more change.

Fashion Through the Decades The Roaring 20s

The costume history image in our minds of a woman
of the 'Roaring Twenties' is actually likely to
be the image of a flapper. Flappers did not truly
emerge until 1926.  Flapper fashion embraced all
things and styles modern.  A fashionable flapper
had short sleek hair, a shorter than average
shapeless shift dress, a chest as flat as a
board, wore make up and applied it in public,
smoked with a long cigarette holder, exposed her
limbs and epitomized the spirit of a reckless
rebel who danced the nights away in the Jazz
Coco Chanel 1883-1971
  • The great fashion designer Gabrielle Chanel self
    styled herself
  • to be known as Coco Chanel.  By 1920 the
    silhouette of her clothing
  • designs have come to be the epitome of 20's
    style.  The work of other
  • famous designers beside hers seemed old fashioned
    and outmoded
  • belonging as they did to the pre World War One
    era. She promoted the
  • styles we associate with flappers. She worked in
    neutral tones of beige,
  • sand, cream, navy and black in soft fluid jersey
    fabrics cut with simple
  • shapes that did not require corsetry or waist
    definition.  They were clothes
  • made for comfort and ease in wear making them
    revolutionary and
  • quite modern.  She was the Jean Muir or Donna
    Karan of her
  • day and the originator of the LBD - that little
    black dress.

50s Fashion
  • Women dressed "smartly' in the Fifties. Good
    grooming and a
  • tailored look were prized. Acting and looking
    "every inch the
  • lady" was taught virtually from the cradle.
    Dresses were
  • extremely popular in the fifties and that was
    just about
  • everything that women and teens wore. Girls
    also would wear
  • dresses and skirts to school.

Norman Hartnell 1901-1979
  • Norman Hartnell was born in 1901. At a very
  • Early age it was clear that he had a great talent
  • for drawing and design, but it was while he was
  • studying Architecture at Cambridge that he
  • started to design clothes . After University
  • Norman started in the fashion trade, opening a
  • salon at No.10 Bruton Street. Early clients
  • included actors Noel Coward and Gertie
  • Lawrence and author Barbara Cartland. He was
  • a very big in the 1950s creating gorgeous
  • evening gowns.

70s Disco Fashion
  • By 1970 women chose who they wanted to be
  • and if they felt like wearing a short mini skirt
  • one day and a maxi dress, midi skirt or hot
  • pants the next day - that's what they did. Bell
  • bottoms became immensely huge in this decade
  • as well as platform shoes and mini skirts.
  • Also many people ore bright obnoxious colors.

Yves Saint Laurent 1936- Present
  • Fashion Designer Yves Saint Laurent was born 1936
    in Oran,
  • Algeria. After winning first prize in the
    International Wool Secretariat
  • contest for his asymmetrical cocktail dress in
    1954, Saint Laurent went
  • immediately to work for Christian Dior. Saint
    Laurent became Haute
  • Couture designer when Dior died in 1957. He
    introduced the trapeze dress
  • in his first collection for Dior in 1958. He was
    replaced by Mark Bohen in
  • 1960, when he fulfilled his military obligations.
    Afterwards, he opened his
  • own couture house, financed by Pierre Berge, in
    1962. During the 70s he
  • introduced the "Le Smoking" tuxedo jacket,
    see-through blouses (1968),
  • peasant blouses, bolero jackets, pantsuits, and

The 80s
  • 1980s fashion history is memorable and quite
    distinctive. A variety of
  • fashion looks ran parallel to each other in the
    1980s. Women of this era
  • began to feel they that really could at last
    choose from one of the many
  • contrasting looks available. The fashion look
    that was the most powerful
  • over the decade was the wide shoulder.   Fashion
    history reveals that the 80s
  • fashion look was a tailored look. It was hard to
    go anywhere without at
  • least a jacket, but preferably a complete suit.
    This was influenced by
  • several movements including media influence on
    1980s fashion through
  • The popularity of TV dramas like 'Dynasty' and
    'Dallas'. Costume dramas
  • brought fashion into real everyday eighties life.

Christian Lacroix 1951- Present
  • In the late 80's, fashion reporters clocked the
    rapid success of Lacroix.
  • Studying Art History with dreams of becoming a
    museum curator or
  • costume designer, Lacroix fell into fashion by
    chance. He was an assistant
  • at Hermes, collaborated with the couturier of the
    Tokyo Imperial Court, and
  • then joined the House of Patou in 1981. Five
    years later, he launched his
  • own label with the bouffant, or "pouf," a
    milestone in fashion history. His
  • label, regarded as "one of the fastest growing
    brands in the LVMH universe
  • has spawned a line of perfume, linens, and
    children's clothing.
  • Unapologetically glamarous, dramatic, and
    expensive-looking. Lacroix
  • came to epitomize the 80's through his use of
    sumptuous fabrics (velvet,
  • satin, taffeta) and overlapping patterns
    (patchwork, stripes). His followers
  • described his signature look as having "panache"
    or "gaiety," while
  • minimalists (though there were very few in the
    80's) preferred to see his
  • ornate bustiers and opera capes left to the

Fashion of Today
  • The 2008 spring and summer runways were
  • rich with culture and flooded with fashion
  • influences from every corner of the world. From
  • saris and caftans to batik and ikat,
  • contemporary designers looked to ancient
  • wisdom. Bright, bold designs passed down
  • through generations helped to infuse current
  • collections. From Latin Americas embroidery to
  • Indias vibrant colors to African prints to
  • draping and details, fashion is
  • coming from all places of the world

The Future of Fashion
  • Unless you've been living under a rock for the
  • past couple decades, you know that pollution
  • and global warming are ever-increasing
  • problems in our society. Recently, there has
  • been a major boom in the production and
  • purchase of "organic" products, everything
  • from food, to fabric, even beauty products!

Fashion is Going Green
  • Many new clothing designers are creating
  • runway looks that are environmentally
  • friendly. From the little black dress to patent
  • leather high heels, the style looks right off the
  • runway. Domino Magazine style editor
  • Chassie Post said some clothes are made of
  • harvested silk charmeuse and shoes colored
  • with vegetable dye.

Pros and Cons
  • There are many pros and cons to fashion going
  • green. Some of the cons are a lot of the time
  • is more expensive then using other materials.
  • Also many people do not know about it. The
  • pros of it are it is eco friendly and completely
  • fashionable without people knowing that it is
  • eco friendly by looking dorky.

Designers Going Eco-Friendly
  • Loomstate is committed to a sustainable future by
    using only 100-percent organic cottons.
  • Edun was founded by Ali Hewson and her rock-star
    husband, who is U2's front man, Bono, along with
    Rogan Gregory.
  • The Anthropologie chain of stores carries
    eco-friendly fashions which range from shirts and
    dresses to jeans. All of which are becoming more
    popular with consumers.
  • Levi's are becoming more eco-friendly. For only
    65, one style of jeans is made of organic
    cotton, and they're actually one of Levi's
    biggest selling jeans.
  • Some stores are devoted exclusively to fashion
    and fashion accessories with an eye on the
    environment. Moo Shoes in lower Manhattan on
    Allen Street also sells footwear, handbags, belts
    and more.
