Fashion is more than just runway models or haute couture. In fact, it plays a crucial role in humanity and history. For example: what people were wearing during a certain period could mean a lot of things – from their stature in life to ideas on rebellion. It is said that fashion began as early as the Egyptian and Roman times.
Back then, what one wore communicated your status, wealth, and/or occupation. Certain colors, fabrics, and styles of clothing became associated with how you stand in society. If you lived during the 13th century for instance, and you were lucky enough to be studying at a university, then you may find yourself wearing clothes in scarlet or violet hues because they were required.
On the other hand, common folk could not just buy or easily create beautiful clothes for themselves. However, they can still ‘be in trend’ by adding their own versions of accessories such as belts or shoes whenever they’re in public.
It wasn’t until the early 1800s that fashion became more of what we know it is today: which is a designer creating gorgeous clothes. Charles Frederick Worth, who is believed to be the world’s first fashion designer, had a fashion house in Paris where he would hire artists to make designs, then presented them to clients. When a client liked one, he or she would place an order. It is only after this process is done that a garment would be stitched.
For the most part, especially at the beginning of the 20th century, Paris enjoyed the title of being ‘the fashion capital of the world’. However, nowadays, other cities can compete with them not only in terms of the number of designers, but also in creativity and passion. Urban jungles like Tokyo, Venice, New York, and Berlin, have all been dubbed as ‘fashionable’ at some point.
