how people lived and dresses. Many of the early
civilizations reached impressive levels of
development.

armour and talismanic jeweler . Were often
produced to extremely high standards. Fine
linen was woven on the banks of the Nile in
Egypt ; sericulture from china supplied the wider

of buckram or paste board and sometimes with a
central wooden busk this happened during the

CHANNEL

Gabrielle Bonheur “coco” Chanel was a French fashion


designer and a businesswoman. She was the founder and
namesake of the Chanel brand. Along with Paul Poiret, Chanel
was credited inn the post World-War I era with liberating
woman from the constraints of “corseted silhouette” and
popularizing a sporty, casual chic as the feminine standard of
style. A prolific fashion creator, Chanel extended her influence
beyond couture clothing.

Panties Cloche
PAUL POIRET
Paul Poiret was born on 20 April 1879 to a cloth merchant in the poor
neighborhood of Les Hells, Paris. Poiret’s route into couture followed
the common practice of shopping around one’s drawings in original
fashion designs. In freeing women from corsets and dissolving the
fortified grandeur of the obdurate, hyperbolic silhouette, Poiret effected
a concomitant revolution in dressmaking.

Christian Dior Showed His La Corolle Collection, Sowing The Seeds
Of Glamour And Creating The Basic Shape Of Fashion For The Next

Christian Dior’s Bar suit, the one with the white
jacket nipped at the waist with a stiff peplum standing
proud of the full, long black skirt with the archaically
padded hips and worn with a white straw hat,
is without doubt the most memorable image from all
of twentieth-century fashion. Long after Dior’s death,
his was the name universally used as a short form
for hugely desirable, hugely elitist couture fashion.
Cecil Beaton named him ‘King Pins and Needles’
and ‘the last of the great couturiers’ and quoted him
thus, ‘Nothing is ever invented. You always start
from something. It is certainly Molyneux’s style that
has most infl uenced me.’

Clothing Styles Have Always Mirrored The Prevailing


Attitudes Of The Times And This Is Certainly True Of
Fashion In The 1960s . The Decade Was Marked By
Sweeping Social Change And The Domination Of Youth
Culture – Baby Boomers Were Growing Were Growing Up
And Demanded Their Own Fashion Style .
Designers Responded With A Much More Liberal , Darning
Approach To Fashion ,Boasting Colorful Fabrics And Bold
Designs.
The 1960s Saw Fashion Reject The Conventions And
Niceties Of Previous Eras. Clothing Broke With Social
Traditions That Dictated What Could Be Worn When And By
Whom In The Past , Attire Had Been Divided In To ‘ Formal ‘
And ‘ Casual’ Wear And Distinct Separations Were Made
Between The Styles Of Clothing Such As Denim Jeans,
Which Could Be Worn By Both Sexes. Further Details

MOD FASHION
Mod, short for ‘modern; refers to a youth lifestyle that emerged from
London during the 1960s, and quickly spread to America, Europe,
Australia. Centered around London’s thriving pop music, art and
fashion scene, the mod lifestyle focused on innovation and the ‘new’
Mod fashion was slim fitting and featured bold geometric shapes.
Colour was also a key concern- the conservative greys, browns and
pastels of the 1950s were replaced by bright wild hues.
YVES SAINT LAURENT
Yves Saint Laurent was, in the words of the man closest to
him, born with a nervous breakdown. Even so he was also
probably the most influential fashion designer of the second
half of the twentieth century, Saint Laurent reinvented Paris
fashion for the young, giving the women of the baby boomer
generation a new wardrobe stocked with easy, youthful
clothes which, in their energy, flirtatious assertiveness and
borrowings, prefigured the social and political emancipation
women were just learning to crave

Of The Brand, From Armani To Burberry Became International-

Example. Sold An Aspirational Lifestyle, And His Underwear Line In
The 1990s Was So Famous That The Garment Became Known Simply
By The Designers Name. For The First Time, Fashions Emerged From
The Street Not The Design Studio. Towards The End Of The 20th
Century The Dress Of Sub-cultural Groups From Goths To Surfers
Became Increasingly Mainstream. The Freehand Authentic Feel To
Street Style Seized The Imagination Of Designers, And The Styles
Themselves Became More Complex As Designers Adapted And
Reworked Them. . Further Details Related To This Time Period Are

VIVIEN WESTWOOD
Clothing has always reconstructed and modifi ed
the structure of the body and it still does today.
What seems to surprise and upset people is reconstructions
that don’t accord with what they
consider to be the norm, the present accepted
idea of beauty. If you design a dress with a sellier, •BELL BOTTOM
the padding that gives it a rounded form has
become a subversive act. Perhaps I mean it to •DENIM PANT
be a subversive act. Perhaps I want to question •PRINTED BELL BOTTOM
people’s prejudices about what is beautiful,

ALEXANDER MC QUEEN
British fashion has produced countless young designers
full of loudmouthed attitude and shocktactics
clothes. Many of them have sparkled briefl y,
like fi reworks, only to fall swiftly to earth. However,
Alexander McQueen, who could always out-swear
his contemporaries and enjoyed creating a furor
on the catwalk, has proved a designer with staying
power. He is an enduring talent who looks certain
to be a major infl uence in fashion for many years
to come. This did not seem so likely back in 1996
when the young designer upset the Parisian fashion
establishment after landing the job of head designer
at Givenchy. McQueen swiftly alienated the French
by making no attempt to speak French, deriding the

represented a huge learning curve for the designer.
