A little history about where things come from never hurt anyone!
Women Communicate Clothing Information
Throughout the 1790s, women relay cutting and styling information for clothing through fashion plates, miniature garments made for dressmaker’s dolls, descriptive letters, and copies of other items of clothing.
I guess technically you can say that these were the fashion guides of their time. It always amazes me of how people made so many things work with so little. We should all be appreciative of them ensuring that generations to come could enjoy their fashion.
This makes me wonder: are we doing enough to preserve the best of our fashion? We have a plethora of negatives that I wish we all would stop idolizing, but the good needs to be glorified as well. I agree that most of our good is recycled from years past, but we’ve put our own twist on most of them and have made it into our own. We should probably start doing a better job of keeping an account of our fashion; something other than making a social networking page and placing them there. That’s good for the short-term but what happens when the fad of social networking is long gone? We need sufficient documentation.
So are you doing your part to preserve our positive fashion????
