“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Coco Chanel Fashion like said the great coco Chanel is a way of living and thanks to fashion we can see how the world was before. It can transportate us to a place and time. Fashion is created by each society of the time so every big impact on the world affects fashion and the people around it. In this essay I’m going to talk about how fashion developed and changed through the 1900s till the 1930s. The setting of these three decades it’s quite turbulent since the world had passed through the First World War and the start of the Second World War, the great depression, the rise of the suffrage, etc. 1900s In the 1900s women’s fashion was still very conservative and formal; long skirts, long sleeves, hair up and tightly corseted torso. Women of this age could wear pants, but they weren’t as popular and used in this decade they were all about skirts and dresses. During these years the rich and privileged were probably the only ones to afford the best clothing made with the most expensive and fancy fabrics with the most beautiful but costly accessories. At this time women didn’t use a lot of necklaces or bracelets but they did wear big pearl earrings. Most women would go to a tailor to get their dresses made perfectly for them. The lower class people made the trends work in a less expensive way but still look nice.
