Life in a modern society is far more restricted by fashion than many people realize; fashion is big business, made-up by original designers and controlled and promoted by business magnates for profit. Moreover, it affects not only clothing, but almost every aspect of daily life from the kind of house we live in, to the kind of book we read. When most people think of ‘fashion’, they think of clothing women’s clothes in particular. The famous designers produce them according through their own ideas, and in doing so create new fashion trends which may or may not be popular.
It was man in the old days who, like the male bird, dressed himself in ‘fine feathers’ — not so much woman. In Britain, for instance, the 18th century brave in his velvet coat tie ruffs and powdered horsehair was wonderful to see. But since about 1820, fashion decreed that to look ‘male’ meant to look sad and men’s clothes have never recovered from the change, or indeed changed very much since then. Women, however, have more than made up for them. Today, even the most remote and primal of them try to obtain Western clothing, shoes, etc- while the richer ladies of more developed countries spend annually millions of pounds real or US dollars on the latest ‘model’. These are first produced in the famous fashion houses of Paris, New York, London and Rome.
