Fashion Show Evolution:
Through this process I began to wonder more about the evolution of fashion shows. Here's what I discovered:
-1800s- "Father of haute couture", Parisian-based designer Charles Frederick Worth, introduced the idea of using live models to showcase to the wealthy their designs. In these days the very wealthy were the only people who had access to designer clothing. Lucky for us- today we have consignment shops!
-Early 1900s- American department stores launched fashion shows, which was a huge reason for the growth of American consumerism. Photographers were not allowed to attend shows back in the day, to prevent designs from being stolen. Buyers would therefore sketch the designs.
-1943- Up until that time, U.S. designers and editors relied mainly on Parisian culture for their inspiration. When U.S. journalists couldn’t travel to Paris Fashion Week during World War II, the era of the American designer began, and NYFW was born!
-The 60s and 70s- The traditional fashion show format completely revolutionized with the rise of ready-to-wear style and fashion during the easy-going, fun-loving sixties. The catwalk became the new medium for designers’ collections.
-1980s- Fashion shows had become so hugely popular, and models like Cindy Crawford began to steal the publics hearts, and it began to make modeling mainstream.
-1990s- Kate Moss, Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows, enough said….
-2001- Carrie Bradshaw got labeled "fashion roadkill", and the term “catwalk” blew up.
-2000s- Technology has had the biggest impact on the evolution of the fashion show. Now fashions shows are at our finger tips, on Youtube, tv, live-streamed….and the affects can be compared to going to a live concert!
