The History of Fashion

Categories : Gembing


Fashion is the prevailing style within a culture at any given time. It encompasses clothing, footwear and accessories but can also refer to a manner of acting or behaviour. Fashion often changes as people adapt to new cultural influences and social pressures.

The fashion industry is dominated by designers and haute couture houses that create exclusive and expensive designs, but the direction of fashion can also be influenced by the mass media which publishes pictures of celebrities and other stylish individuals in order to promote certain styles of clothing or hairstyles. The emergence of new trends in fashion is closely linked to the development of the dressmaking industry and the use of labour-intensive techniques.

The beginning of continual and accelerating change in European clothing styles can be fairly reliably dated to late medieval times. Historians have noted a shift from long dresses, veiled headgear and the like to short skirts and bare midriffs.

In the era of consumerism, fashion is very important for most people. They want to look as attractive as possible to earn the respect of others and fit in. In this way, they follow the latest fashioned clothes that are sold in the market.

Fashion is something that has been around since the beginning of human civilization. It has a deep impact on our society and culture. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that we should not get carried away by the fashion world because it can be harmful for our health. The best way to do that is to always make sure that you have the right balance and proportion in whatever you wear.
