The definition of fashion and anti-fashion is as follows: Anti-fashion is fixed and changes little over time. Anti-fashion is different depending on the cultural or social group one is associated with or where one lives, but within that group or locality the style changes little. Fashion is the exact opposite of anti-fashion. Fashion changes very quickly and is not affiliated with one group or area of the world but is spread out throughout the world wherever people can communicate easily with each other. For example, Queen Elizabeth II’s 1953 coronation gown is an example of anti-fashion because it is traditional and does not change over any period whereas a gown from fashion designer Dior’s collection of 1953 is fashion because the style will change every season as Dior comes up with a new gown to replace the old one. In the Dior gown the length, cut, fabric, and embroidery of the gown change from season to season. Anti-fashion is concerned with maintaining the status quo while fashion is concerned with social mobility. Time is expressed in terms of continuity in anti-fashion and as change in fashion. Fashion has changing modes of adornment while anti-fashion has fixed modes of adornment. Indigenous and peasant modes of adornment are an example of anti-fashion. Change in fashion is part of the larger system and is structured to be a deliberate change in style.
Fashion designers attempt to design clothes which are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. They consider who is likely to wear a garment and the situations in which it will be worn, they have a wide range and combinations of materials to work with and a wide range of colors, patterns and styles to choose from. Though most clothing worn for everyday wear falls within a narrow range of conventional styles, unusual garments are usually sought for special occasions such as evening wear or party dresses.
It was in this atmosphere that the 1968 White House fashion show was born. Its host, Lady Bird Johnson, was successor to the fashion-forward Jackie Kennedy—whose iconic style had revolutionized the way first lady fashion was covered by the press. Though Johnson considered fashion “froufrou” and despaired of competing with the famously chic Kennedy, she learned that keeping up with fashion was an effective way of ensuring the media focused on things she considered more important, rather than fretting about her dowdy wardrobe in print. She even made the International Best Dressed List in 1966. But she also knew that her fashion choices carried enormous political power. “Fashion starts at the White House,” observed Nina Hyde, the fashion editor of the Washington Daily News and one of the organizers of the show. “Front-page news makes front-page fashion. If a woman is going to be in the public eye, other women are influenced by what she wears.”
With the start of the war and a strict rationing on fabric, dresses in the 1940s became shorter. Whereas the 1930s featured dresses down to mid calf, the 1940s brought them up to knee length. The war also affected the top of the dress.

While the U.S. garment industry faced off against Europe, the role of the American fashion designer changed. While haute couture, the highly regulated Parisian custom-made clothing industry, had long been driven by the creativity and personalities of individual designers, Seventh Avenue was dominated by faceless manufacturing firms who produced multiple ready-to-wear lines. Most prided themselves on the impressive volume of their output, rather than its quality or originality. Indeed, even high-end manufacturers peddled authorized knockoffs of Parisian couture. But in the late 1960s, more and more designers made the transition from hired hand to figurehead, from the workroom to the front office. Their names began to appear on labels and their faces in advertisements—and their designs were original. Finally, designers emerged from the shadows into the harsh glare of celebrity. In 1969, the New York Times would hail the shift as “a turning point in American design” that had “not only led to structural changes in the dress business but also produced a new attitude toward fashion.”

Westbrook, who possesses the confidence to wear hot-pink pants, laughs off all of this, which he attributes to insecurity. “Sometimes people ask me jokingly for style advice, but I know they mean it seriously,” he says. He’s happy to oblige. Long before the NBA, back when he was still scouting $2 frames, Westbrook harbored an ambition to one day run his own fashion empire. And not just the star athlete’s typical sneakers-and-video-games franchise, though he has these covered. (Nike sells his shoes, and Electronic Arts put him on the cover of NBA Live 16.)
Mary Quant and Andre Courreges both contributed to the invention of miniskirt during the 1960s. Mary Quant, A British designer, was one of the pioneers of the miniskirt during 1960. She named the skirt after her favorite car, the Mini Cooper. Quant introduced her design in the mid-60s at her London boutique, Bazaar. She has said: “ We wanted to increase the availability of fun for everyone. We felt that expensive things were almost immoral and the New Look was totally irrelevant to us.” Miniskirts became popular in London and Paris and the term “Chelsea Look” was coined.

A-line has been ruling the fashion world for some time now, and it is definitely on the rise, especially for the resort season. It looks best when sported with a touch of the 70s for a bit of a twist.

Leading the parade, held by a nurse and dressed in a pale blue cape, was 8-month-old Charlie Jr. Fatherhood had surely affected Mr. James. What else could explain why a design genius would bother with a pipsqueak trade like children’s wear? Even then, it was a tough business, filled with manufacturers with names like Cute Togs and Bo-peep trying to strain a profit from a yard of seersucker. On the other hand, Mr. James’s idea of baby clothes, like all his ideas, was attached to a principle.
