Sample text

One figure of special note in the eighteenth century was the dressmaker and stylist Rose Bertin. Bertin, who would later became known as the Ministre de la Mode, was instrumental in generating a passion for the latest fashions thanks to her work for the French queen Marie Antoinette, whom she dressed from 1770 until she was dethroned in 1792. Through her clever self-promotion, business acumen, and transnational reach, Bertin helped to turn dressmaking toward a modern model of the fashion business.

48 FORM, FIT, AND FASHION 03 1970s Marked in the early years by the opposition to the Vietnam War, the oil crisis, Nixon’s impeachment, and the rise of the Women’s Liberation and Black Power movements, the 1970s were a decade of disillusionment and experimentation. It was a time when the ease and widespread availability of air travel led to a conglomeration of ethnic trends from every corner of the world, among them caftans, kimonos, turbans, peasant blouses, fur vests, and quilted jackets. Hemlines ran the gamut from mini to maxi and platforms were the shoe of choice.

By the end of the 1800s, though, the bustle had been reduced to a small pad that carried into the Edwardian era. Parallel to mainstream fashion, a movement emerged in the 1860s and 1870s known as artistic and, later, aesthetic dress. In protest against crinolines and restrictive corsets, as well as the idea of mass-produced clothing, a group of artists, writers, and actors, most famously associated with Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris, promoted this looser, distinctly bohemian style that embraced many medieval and Renaissance sensibilities.
