North America’s effect on West European fashion is often viewed only in relation to Hollywood and celebrity. However, its influence has been far more diverse, from technological inventions to leisure wear and the professionalization of the industry.

Encyclopedia entry

Visual media have played an enormous role in the development of fashion in West Europe. Fashion imagery emerged within print journalism, more specifically women’s magazines, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The development of popular cinema in the first half of the twentieth century had a momentous impact on the global fashion industry, especially in the star system, the “tie-in,” and the involvement of both couturiers and ready-to-wear designers in film. From the radical changes of th

The original fifteenth-century Gothic dress for women combined thirteenth-century ideals of fitness for purpose and an ecclesiastical sensibility (headdresses in particular bore direct reference to the wimple) with beauty of line and sumptuous fabrics (velvets and brocades).

Perhaps nothing in the twentieth century has influenced North American clothing more than film or, to use the more prosaic term, the movies. Many authors have written about the role of the designer throughout the past hundred years, claiming that the fashionable style and look comes essentially from that rarified source, but a close look at the history of the movies and their pervasive role in modern society suggests otherwise. From their beginning in the 1890s, films have fascinated, captivated,

Book chapter

In the United States the fashion industry's power to shape the image and self-images of women has been closely tied to the growth of the film industry and its use of fashion. Hollywood films, coupled with the wide distribution of women's magazines (including fan magazines devoted to stars and the screen world), have colluded with the garment and advertising industries to mold who we are and can become. Certainly this collusion cannot be described as a conscious plot to maintain patriarchy, capita
