Article

In London, the Victoria and Albert Museum’s 1971 exhibition “Fashion: An Anthology by Cecil Beaton” attracted more than 90,000 visitors, making it one of the most well attended shows in the museum’s history. While Beaton acquired examples of historical dress from some of Britain’s most fashionable women, he placed particular emphasis on recent fashion—a largely unprecedented idea. Also important was the exhibition’s experimental installation, created in part by professional store window dressers

Mystifying, intriguing, thought-provoking: the layered work of the Spanish artist Salvador Dalí (1904–1989) appeared across painting, drawing, film, and sculpture. He is best known for his involvement in the artistic and literary movement of surrealism, which explored the unconscious. However, Dalí’s increasingly commercial endeavors and lifelong interest in dress led him to become hugely influential in fashion, from his meticulously flamboyant self-presentation to his collaborations with couturi

1970s Style: Key Themes and Trends

Jo Turney

Source: Fashion Photography Archive 2015

Article

The 1970s established fashion as performance, an element of cultures of display in which the street became catwalk (and vice versa), fusing fashion with media such as music, dance, film, and art. It was a decade of imagination and individuality, resulting from newfound social and personal freedoms (Tom Wolfe dubbed it the “Me” decade) which combined with a sartorial knowingness created a new confidence in the presentation of the self—anything was possible and the only limits were of one’s imagina

Evidence about Dress in Canada

Dress in Canada is a complex topic, encompassed by seventeenth-century New France, the settling of the west in the late nineteenth century, and the growing multicultural cities of the twenty-first century. Canada is a land of immigrants, from the founding nations of France and England, to the waves of European and now Asian immigration. There is the strong influence of England on the Commonwealth nation, and of the United States. The study of dress is spread unevenly across Canada, engaging acade

The country of Solomon Islands was formed in the 1890s by British colonization of a chain of islands in the southwest Pacific region of Melanesia. From west to east these include the major islands of Choiseul, New Georgia, Santa Isabel, Guadalcanal, Malaita, and Makira, with many smaller groups from Shortland Islands in the west to Santa Cruz far to the east. Like other island Melanesians in Papua New Guinea to the west and Vanuatu to the east, Solomon Islanders live by farming, foraging, and fis

Norwegian Folk Dress in the United States

Encyclopedia entry

Emigration from Norway to the United States lasted for approximately one hundred years, from 1825 to 1925. Norway’s terrain provided only three percent arable land; for Norwegian immigrants, the fertile plains in America’s Midwest were an attractive destination. Few packed distinctively Norwegian clothing, knowing that following local styles would indicate their intention to blend in. However, Norwegian dress echoed among the Norwegian American population through continued contact between Norway

Evidence about Dress in the United States

Encyclopedia entry

Dress is one of the most informative aspects of our culture. It reveals the personal aesthetic of the wearer in response to specific times, places, and events. Through dress one can often ascertain the age, sex, occupation, socioeconomic status, and religion of the wearer. One can investigate life rituals, family relationships, cross-cultural, and regional attitudes. One of the most persistent problems in dress history is the changing definition of the word costume. It is used by historians and c

Dress and Fashion Exhibits

Encyclopedia entry

Examples of secular and ecclesiastical dress have been part of the founding collections of many of the world’s great museums. In the late sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, in private “cabinets of curiosities” that were the forerunners of many museums as institutions, elements of dress were collected in part to represent the curious and strange, in part for the artistry of the textiles and ornamentation. A number of museums have been founded on the basis of private collections, and

Historically-Inspired Bridal Wear from the Nineteenth to the Twenty-First Centuries

Encyclopedia entry

This article considers the influence of historical styles on bridal wear, a common trend in design from the nineteenth century through to the twenty-first. It considers the extent to which details of historical design have been—and still are—incorporated into wedding dresses and, chiefly, the reasons behind doing so. This will be explored through several examples showing either overt or subtle references to a particular historical timeframe, considering the choice of the bride and the psychology
