Fashion has been around for a long time. If you’d like to learn more, The Denver Art Museum is doing an online class on fashion. Attendees will “explore the role fashion plays in our lives as a system that has been built through the centuries from the Renaissance and as an outlet that allows each person to construct their identity.” This online lecture is a history lesson of fashion from its aristocratic origins to today’s social media fanfare. Here’s a little background that the lecture will dive deeper into. Also, if you are looking to buy or sell a home in Colorado, consider Mark Eibner as your agent.

Fashion History

Though clothing has been around since primitive humans walked the earth, the concept of fashion didn’t really pick up until the 18th and 19th centuries. Fashion was used by kings, queens, and courtiers as a symbolic affirmation of their power. As time went on, fashion became magazine keystones and shows began to pop up at the first Worlds Fairs, exhibiting fashion as an art. Today, fashion is largely used as a tool for everyone to express their role and identity in society.

In modern times, the global fashion industry affects everyone—not just consumers that buy the clothes, but also the industries that produce them. Before the mid-19th century, most clothing was custom-made. Though dressmakers and tailors are now less common, designers still have a role in making custom, couture pieces. For the average consumer, clothing and therefore fashion is a mass-produced product. This is due to the rise of new technologies such as the sewing machine, global trade, and the development of the factory system of production.
