Fashion is in the Sky

Fashion is in the Sky


“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
— Coco Chanel

We have a tendency to relate the notion of women’s fashion with images of celebrities posing on the red carpet and models walking the runway, yet we tend to forget fashion’s ability to reflect society; the evolution of twentieth-century fashion mirrored the social, economic, and political circumstances of Western culture, which was popularized by prolific designers and stars of the time. The purpose of this timeline is to demonstrate this communication between fashion’s function and its aesthetic, and to allow visual interaction with how trends in the past century have developed and transcended societal boundaries.
