World War II,Demographics,children’s, tweens’, and teens’ apparel,Baby boom generation,The apparel industry is not the only potential beneficiary of the growing interest in dressing children well. Psychologists believe that clothes play an important role in shaping and guiding a child's self-image.

Book chapter + STUDIO

As you learned in Chapter 6, “Dress and Physical Appearance,” the body is a very important vehicle in the public presentation of oneself to others. We make assessments of others on the basis of body characteristics and configurations, we categorize others (often unknowingly) based on their body size, color, attractiveness, or other physical features, and we often make evaluations and judgments about their worth (real or imagined) once we have assessed and categorized them. The previous chapter we

Book chapter

First, let's look at infants. An infant is a baby from birth to the age when it begins to walk. Its head is one-quarter of the total body size. Everything about an infant is round, from the head and its features to the torso and the arms and legs. The legs turn inward and the knees have exaggerated dimples. Because infants don't walk or even crawl, the only poses available are lying down or propped up.

Ray Petri

Article

An influential stylist before the term was coined, Ray Petri (born 1948, Scotland) created images of youth culture at a moment when street style first entered the realm of commercialization and mass consumption. Working for publications like The Face and i-D, he cast a diverse group of teens rather than trained models to usher in a new age of fashion imagery. Pouty boys painted orange appear in button-down denim and ski caps—one of his many subversive takes on sportswear—to create a new look cut

Encyclopedia entry

Sydney department store mail order catalogs and clothing advertisements from the late nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries provide information regarding clothing available for Australian children. However, they refer mainly to the relatively affluent middle class. Australian life was often more informal than North American or British life; the climate necessitated practical styles. Turn-of-the-century catalogs assumed that English tastes would appeal to Australians and that mothers primarily

Ceremonial and Special-Occasion Dress

Source: Berg Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion. Global Perspectives, 2010, Berg Fashion Library

Encyclopedia entry

There is a difference between the terms ceremonial and special-occasion dress. The latter is an out-of-the-ordinary event, possibly unique. Societal conventions create parameters as to what is acceptable wear at these times, but personal clothing choices made by the participants help make it a special occasion. Ceremonial refers to repeated events occurring within a set framework, a somewhat rigid and formalized series of actions. In anthropological terms, a ceremony is generally more suitably na

Encyclopedia entry

From the beginning of European settlement in New South Wales in 1788, Australians were using alternative forms of dress, body decoration, and modification, visibly expressing individual and collective identities, aesthetic codes, values, beliefs, and cultural experiences different from the dominant culture. Some developed personal style statements, and others have been part of collective subcultural expressions linked to interests, lifestyles, and philosophies. Most have been youth-generated, chi

Encyclopedia entry

A rite of passage is a series of ritualized acts moving an individual from one stage of life to another, a formal and public marking of changing status and position within society. Rituals are repeated patterned actions that serve to reinforce and publicly announce beliefs and values to both the participating initiate and a culturally aware audience.

Encyclopedia entry

Children’s clothing can be especially revealing of a culture’s beliefs and values because it is so often used not only to signify the wearer’s identity and group association but also to teach cultural patterns to the young. The fashions worn by North American children and youth reveal a history of increasing emphasis on individuality expressed through consumer goods.

Encyclopedia entry

After World War II, the Polish United Workers’ Party came to power in Poland. For the Communist authorities, educating young people in the Marxist and Leninist spirit was of particular importance. A Communist teenager was obliged to strengthen the system and the state as well as engage in activism through youth organizations. Clothing was also an element revealing the teen’s position in society. The government-promoted school or union uniform played an educational and social role, and its standar

Is it possible to understand the way people dress by looking at their history and natural environment? A survey of Norwegians’ habits and attitudes related to clothing suggests that the answer is yes. The country is located on the periphery of the European continent. There are few inhabitants, and the combination of a long coastline and numerous mountain ranges has led to scattered settlements and great distances between them. Politically, Norway became independent in 1905 after being a part of t

Encyclopedia entry

Australian pop and rock music has been inseparable from fashion since the 1950s. Australia had a popular musical culture from the first days of European settlement, but in the 1950s rock ’n’ roll and pop began to dominate other musical forms. Taking shape as an industry, they were supported by and supported the arrival of television, the growing print media, and radio, which continued to be an essential social bond and cultural disseminator. Dress was increasingly the key that proved to audiences

Encyclopedia entry

New Zealand has a strong and continuing tradition of school uniform in secondary (high) schools. Nearly everyone going to school in New Zealand since the 1940s wore a uniform for between five and thirteen of their formative years, although their experiences are likely to have been different from those of their parents and the next generation. The meanings and the functions of school uniforms are culturally and historically specific, and in New Zealand they altered considerably over the twentieth
