My senior graduation project is based on the development of fashion. I chose the title because I will introduce the decades and show how they have grown and continued into this decade.
The order I will be presenting my power point in.
People during time continuously repeat fashion trends due to the major success it carried through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Many people are known to duplicate certain styles and are worn today.
“Fashion fade, style is eternal” this quotsis basically defining the fact that no fashion statement will last because new types of trends will come along. It all depends on who’s coming out with a new trend or what fashion company is advertizing that new “look”. The phrase “style is eternal” means that no matter what if you keep up with styles then it will last for a long time.
People generally pick out certain trends because of how appealing they look or by who’s wearing them. Mostly celebrities have a great impact on fashion trends because teens usually look at celebrities as their role models and idols.
“Fashion is a popular trend, esp. in styles of dress and ornament or manners of behavior.”-Dictionary.comA clothing style may be introduced as a fashion, but its use becomes a custom after being handed down from generation to generation. A fashion that comes and goes is called a Fad.Clothing can be decorated or designed with all types of images and colors. The designs can either be embroidered onto the fabric, woven on to the fabric, silk screened, or ironed onto the fabric to create a desired look. Some images that have been used to enhance an article of clothing range from a simple design on front of a T shirt to a famous printing that has been woven into fabric creating a colorful piece of art that one can wear.http://library.thinkquest.org/J002932/What%20is%20Fashion.html
“A trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing.”-Dictionary.comFor an example of trends in the following photo’s are fashion statements I’m sure we have seen worn still today.Gladiator Sandals: The ultimate fashion-warrior shoe. Having first been “seen” in 2007, these were still the shoe to be wearing through 2008. The shoe factories started pumping out the designs – we see them in knee-high, ankle-high, and in metallic colors. They offer toughness to an outfit, even if just wearing a simple cotton dress.Headbands: Another trend that we first saw back in 2007, perhaps even as far back as 2006, it started out as a simple scarf tied around the hair on stars like Nicole Richie. But these morphed into a more sophisticated look in 2008, reminiscent of the flapper era. Velvet turbans, sequinned headbands – the headband became the must-have accessory of the year.http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://mamasarollingstone.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/top-fashion-trends-1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://mamasarollingstone.com/category/fashion/fashion-trends/&usg=__HcTWzwpFwrqTfA0ziopN7nismvo=&h=460&w=530&sz=248&hl=en&start=7&sig2=nhWJn4RirgyzUQ8lw5OLhA&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=dTikdSxAjvty9M:&tbnh=115&tbnw=132&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dfashion%2Btrends%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26gbv%3D2%26tbs%3Disch:1&ei=i3nsS7vlBsvk-QbT1uTGBA&safe=active
Celebrities definitely have an impact on the clothes we wear today. - The reason we try to dress like the celebrities is because we grab peoples attention because if you dress like them then you will get that same attention they get. - Teenagers especially try to get the expensive clothing because you look more rich which will get others wanting to be like you. - Celebrities are a perfect target for designers to get there products selling. - In the photo above is showing celebrities Mary Kate, Lindsey Lohan and Katherine Heigl in a scarf with sculls for the print.
The hippy culture had their own way of defining their groups; one could see the youth wearing bell-bottom jeans and tie and dye prints. Color was the one factor that bound hippies together. http://www.buzzle.com/articles/
This slide gives a description of what a hippie style is. The look was based on the 60’s hippie movement where their spirits were free and they dressed the way they wanted to show peace and freedom. People can relate to this sort of style because they want to feel comfortable and have that sense of peace and freedom. Which is why a lot of people continue this fashion trend in today.
This slide is basically a example of how certain fashion trends stick around because of the patterns.As seen for the example of a polka dot dress in the 60s the fabric doesn’t look very thought out. Although the 60s dress doesn’t look as colorful as the one from the 2000s, the one from the 60s version is more vintage and that is what the trend is today.The look for the 2000s dress gives off a sophisticated look that most woman want to look in order to attract the eye.Many designers keep these type of designs are around because it attracts the eye and brings attention to the material.
“The mod style is seen in wide headbands; this is a more classic, clean-cut style of headband. The ladies on Gossip Girl have been seen wearing these. There are a lot of modern ways to wear the hippie style of headbands. "Scene kids" or other non mainstream teens have worn neon stretchy headbands on their head like a hippie would have.” http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Hippie-Head-band-The-60s-and-Today
Vintage clothing is very much popular today. There unique fabric and vibe of the style is often seen as dressing modern and classy. Belts usually are now being placed over the waist or on the hip. Leather boots are very much in style now. Headbands were worn often in each decade not just the 60’s
Many people will still wear mini skirts not to just show off there legs but because certain high boots or leggings will give you that modern look which is known to be fashionable today.
Politically extremist and fundamentalist groups committed acts of terrorism. In terms of dress, fashion magazines declared “anything goes” there were no rules anymore. The 70's was also known as "the Me Decade." People, during this time, concentrated on their own leisure and happiness. They were recovering after the sorrow and pain of war. This would be a decade of fun and leisure.- “ Fashions of a DECADE the 1970’s”..“It was writer Tom Wolfe who dubbed the seventies the “Me Decade.”Problem was, there were lots of “Me’s” fighting for a piece of the action. “ – “Fashions of a DECADE the 1970’s” In fact, people today strive to be different but they never succeed because the next person wants to be just as unique as the next. Thus making it difficult to be original.This side is about the “Me decade” This decade was a time where everyone want to be different in how they dressed to get that attention of a new trend invention. Teenagers today still strive for that yearn to be unique style wise. Know matter

This slide is more evidence of how the fashion duplicates itself in the 70’s and 2000’s.I chose the 70’s picture above because in that period of time the ladies liked to wear settle but fun looking dresses to bring out there attitude. The outfits put together resemble the one’s shown for the 1970s outwear.
“After the swinging sixties and the excesses of the 1970s punk rock, there had to be a backlash. It came in the 1980s, with the art of being serious, grown-up and hard-working carried to the extreme.” ” Fashion of a decade , the 1980’s”Eighties fashion is almost as big as it was in the 1980’s, but the question remains what exactly is 80’s fashion. Well the 1980s was a particularly diverse time in the fashion industry. There were many icons from this time such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Tom Cruise, and the stars of Miami Vice that drastically altered the way that people dress. After all the 80s was the time where it was agreed that we lived in a material world and there was so much great fashion that emerged from this time. http://www.ringsurf.com/online/715-80_s_fashion.html
The whole punk movement initially started as an anti establishment music movement, which quickly spiralled into the polictical, artistic and fashion worlds. Spurred on by punk legends The Ramones, The Clash and The Sex Pistols who created an entirely new look which launched designers like Vivienne Westwood and still acts as an inspiration for designers and fashion followers today. -http://www.nzgirl.co.nz/articles/10574 Punk rock influences abound this season with studs, zippers, skinny black pants, leggings, leather jackets and more. Whether you go head-to-toe rocker or wear a single piece to toughen up your look, this trend is singing our song.
“ In fact the mood did not last long and the decade soon began to show its true colors.”“ Just as the mini-skirted teenage girl became the symbol of the sixties, so the well-tailored young executive, quickly dubbed a “yuppie,” summed up the eighties spirit of hard work and individual responsibility” -” Fashion of a decade , the 1980’s”
Once everyone got over being a punk rock star, things became to get more serious and dim down to a more success full look.A lot of women would wear suits with their hair pulled back to give the illusion of a business women.This way high earned companies could visually see how responsible you look and can be.
This slide is a brief explanation of what hasn’t really changed since the 80’s and 2000’s and why the style is still in today. - The quote above basically means that there’s a difference between style and fashion because someone could put together an outfit and think its really unique and fun looking, When the next person is thinking differently. The quality of it all is how much time you put into your outfits and it will show that you take fashion seriously.
1980s clothing styles are back on the shelves now, and we take a look at what makes these eighties fashions for women endure the test of time.
Baggy jeans were very hip in the 90s and is still worn today because of how comfortable and relaxed they are. The flannel shirts came in all sorts of colors and stripes. More skater and tom boys wear them because it is comfy and easy to throw on.
The picture shown first is a various amount of clothing that is worn by Mary Kate. She is seen being worn a grunge look because its very relaxed and lose. This certain look was meant to look sloppy and not so much thought out. As far as the next picture it is more upgraded.- The “look” that Mary Kate
I’ve learned that no matter the decade a fashion trend is in, if its very appealing at that time then most likely it will continue throughout the years.
