Political culture plays a critical role in the fashion industry. Political changes are reflection of today’s fashions. Most of the political events and laws are affecting fashion in a way of creating fashion trend. Considering the relationship between fashion and politics, we can see how fashion is not only a matter of aesthetic but it involves politics as well. Within political references, we can see how fashion can change.
Fashion merchandising is the promotion of apparel sales and involves all of the tasks necessary to deliver the clothing requests and meet the needs of potential customers and designers. Fashion merchandising involves developing campaigns, displays and advertisements, directing manufacturing and marketing as well as creating sales strategies for the fashion industry or the retail environment.
I did. And I discovered that after over four decades of believing long skirts represented women’s antiliberation, acres of material that impeded progress, of choosing to get married in a short dress and wearing short dresses to the Met Gala (twice) and cheering whenever celebrities wore miniskirts to awards shows as a declaration of independence, I had acquired over the past six months not just one ankle-length skirt, but two dresses with handkerchief hems that likewise reach my feet. Also long sleeves and round necks.
With its power and profile on the rise, the U.S. fashion industry also became increasingly politically active. On December 6, 1967, a group of Seventh Avenue designers and manufacturers proposed a boycott of French couture and French textiles, in response to anti-American and anti-Israeli statements by General Charles de Gaulle. Thanks to the rise of Swiss, Italian and American textile manufacturers, the U.S. fashion industry was finally in a position to stand up to the French without hurting its own bottom line. Seventh Avenue was tired of playing second fiddle to Europe.
If there is one hard-and-fast fashion rule that has applied to all first ladies of the modern era, it is to buy and wear American-made (or at least American-designed) clothing, even on the campaign trail. Jackie Kennedy’s official designer, Oleg Cassini, was a U.S. Army veteran. Nancy Reagan wore James Galanos, Bill Blass, Adolfo and Geoffrey Beene, often in patriotic “Reagan Red.” Barbara and Laura Bush lived in clothes by Dominican-American Oscar de la Renta and Arnold Scaasi, a Canadian-born New Yorker. Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits were by Ralph Lauren. Michelle Obama put her own spin on patriotic dressing, supporting young Seventh Avenue designers—often designers of color—rather than established industry stalwarts. (Another one of her innovations was mixing designer pieces with inexpensive basics from J. Crew and Gap—clothes any American woman could afford.)
As a former model—one reportedly talented enough to land an EB-1 visa on the basis of her “extraordinary ability”—Trump could be a supremely effective walking advertisement for American design. But apart from an occasional nod to Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein or Michael Kors, she has chosen to wear foreign designers, even for high-profile public appearances and ceremonial events: a Roksanda Ilincic dress for the Republican National Convention; a Gucci pussy blouse for the presidential debate; Stella McCartney for the Thanksgiving turkey pardoning; a Chanel coat for the National Christmas Tree lighting; Delpozo to address the United Nations; Erdem for New Year’s Eve at Mar-a-Lago; an ivory Dior pantsuit for the State of the Union address; Pucci to welcome Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the White House; Mary Katrantzou for the Congressional Picnic; a Dolce & Gabbana gown for the Governors’ Ball.
This first lady requirement has as much to do with economics as it does with America’s cultural ego. In the 20th century, it wasn’t China that the U.S. fashion industry was up against. It was Europe. Historically, Europe—especially France—dominated manufacturing and design. But after World War II, with European economies in ruins and the French fashion industry co-opted by the Nazi occupation, the United States gained an advantage against its trans-Atlantic counterparts—just as China reaps the reward of our battered manufacturing sector today.

“When people are seated at fashion shows wearing pasties, the only thing that could be shocking is a tailored suit,” Mr. Kors referring to the surprise appearance last month of Nicki Minaj at 10:30 a.m. on a Saturday at the side of Haider Ackermann’s runway, her left breast almost entirely exposed. Also the fact that the whole look was still somehow much less seductively relevant than Alek Wek in a perfectly cut black cashmere tuxedo coat, skinny black trousers and black polo neck sashaying her way down the catwalk in front.
Suit skirts were A-line, not pencil. This means they flared out gradually from the hip to the knee. Dresses from the early years didn’t have any pleats or gathers because that wasted fabric. The later ’40s had some pleats and a wide “A” shape and even included some pockets. Teenagers were the biggest fans of skirts. They loved plaids and stripes and full skirts making the latest fad– swing dancing– easier to move in. Learn more about 1940s skirt history and shop 1940s skirts.

The locations in small Southern cities offered two advantages — there wasn’t much competition from big retail chains, and image-conscious fashion labels could “bury the goods,” as Bill put it, far from New York or Los Angeles where they had stores. That’s why, in part, such incredible fashion flows through U.A.L., including in-season styles, and the place feels like a dream store. It also means the West Village in Manhattan or Beverly Hills is unlikely to ever get a store.

In eastern Indonesia, both the production and use of traditional textiles have been transformed as the production, use and value associated with textiles have changed due to modernization. In the past, women produced the textiles either for home consumption or to trade with others. Today, this has changed as most textiles are not being produced at home. Western goods are considered modern and are valued more than traditional goods, including the sarong, which retain a lingering association with colonialism. Now, sarongs are used only for rituals and ceremonial occasions, whereas western clothes are worn to church or government offices. Civil servants working in urban areas are more likely than peasants to make the distinction between western and traditional clothes. Following Indonesia’s independence from the Dutch, people increasingly started buying factory made shirts and sarongs. In textile-producing areas the growing of cotton and production of naturally colored thread became obsolete. Traditional motifs on textiles are no longer considered the property of a certain social class or age group. Wives of government officials are promoting the use of traditional textiles in the form of western garments such as skirts, vests and blouses. This trend is also being followed by the general populace, and whoever can afford to hire a tailor is doing so to stitch traditional ikat textiles into western clothes. Thus, traditional textiles are now fashion goods and are no longer confined to the black, white and brown colour palette but come in array of colours. Traditional textiles are also being used in interior decorations and to make handbags, wallets and other accessories, which are considered fashionable by civil servants and their families. There is also a booming tourist trade in the eastern Indonesian city of Kupang where international as well as domestic tourists are eager to purchase traditionally printed western goods.

As women have found their voice politically, they have begun to express themselves sartorially, be it through white pantsuits, so-called pussy hats or the modest fashion movement. Clothes are an integral part of the debate over the freedom to make your own choices — whether about what you do with your body or who touches your body or what you put on your body — that began with the rise of gender-neutral dressing, picked up steam thanks to both the leaked tape of Mr. Trump talking about grabbing women and the debate over the hijab, and became even more visible during the Women’s March on Washington in January.

Fashion photography in the 1960s represented a new feminine ideal for women and young girls: the Single Girl. 1960s photography was in sharp contrast to the models of the 1920s, who were carefully posed for the camera and portrayed as immobile. The Single Girl represented ‘movement’. She was young, single, active, and economically self-sufficient. To represent this new Single Girl feminine ideal, many 1960s photographers photographed models outside—often having them walk or run in fashion shoots. Models in the 1960s also promoted sports wear, which reflected the modern fascination with speed and the quickening pace of the 1960s urban life. Although the Single Girl was economically, socially and emotionally self-sufficient, the ideal body form was difficult for many to achieve. Therefore, women were constrained by diet restrictions that seemed to contradict the image of the empowered 1960s Single Girl.
Finally the suit jacket topped the outfit. Jackets were of the same materiel as the skirt but could be mismatched if that’s all you had. They had the same padded, wide shoulder, high neckline, and nipped in waist with only a slight flair at the bottom. The lower edge of the jacket came to mid hip length. Jackets were button down and featured a variety of lapel width, points and shapes. It wasn’t necessary to wear a blouse under a suit jacket but was often more comfortable. The bolero jacket was a nice, short, rounded edge jacket that was worn over a blouse. They rarely buttoned in front– preferring to hang open and show off the blouse. Sleeves were always long and narrow.
