2. Dünya Savaşının ve Pandeminin Kıyafetlere Etkileri

İkinci Dünya Savaşının ve Pandeminin Kıyafetlere Etkileri

Bir seneyi geçkin bir süredir tüm dünya pandemiyle savaşıyoruz ve aşıların bulunup geliştirilmesiyle, aşılama programlarıyla artık pandemiden çıkış sinyallerimizi veriyoruz. Yani en kısa zamanda öyle olmasını umuyorum. Bu konu hakkında düşünürken pandeminin moda dünyasına etkisini, bizim üzerimizdeki etkisini düşündüm. Ve bu düşünce beni tarihi incelemeye yöneltti. Acaba savaş zamanlarında moda nasıl ayakta kalmıştı, neler değişmişti?

Moda tarihini seven birisi olarak hemen 1940 lara gittim. İkinci dünya savaşı..

Proudly, “Plus” Size!

Starting from the mid-20th century, the fashion industry has been presenting young and thin people like it’s the only correct way to exist -especially for women. High fashion clothes were made in smaller sizes and worn by thin models; of course, this affected the ready-to-wear clothing, too. I want to say that ready-to-wear brands have always been nicer and more open to big people but their designs were either basic or not stylish. Most of the big size clothes were out of style, like things my grandma would wear.  This supported the idea that young people are not allowed to be fat and bigger people are not fashionable -or even beautiful- so they can’t wear stylish clothes unless they lose weight. And there were tons of styling tips to “help” big people look thinner. It felt like this industry didn’t even care for them!

Sustainability became an important part of our lives. Whether it’s for saving the planet or not wasting money, we tend to buy less items or upcycle our belongings and use them in different ways after they are ripped off or are needed anymore.

Are you feeling like you are living in the space age literally? Can you guess what is expecting us in the future? Making spot-on guesses is getting harder year by year. Because numerous new needs and new life habits eventually will come up. A decade later probably will be way more different than we imagine. Therefore it is not hard to foresee the near future. While almost everything is getting digital, our way of clothing will be digital as well. There are some signals for this. Let’s take look at these signals. For instance, a digital fashion house The Fabricant sold a digital couture dress ‘Iridescence’ for $9500 in 2019. This dress is digital and you cannot literally wear it. It moves on you and it has a hyper-reality look. This is a significant amount of money for a non-existing gown. This dress was bought by a woman named Mary. Creative Director Amber Jae Slooten from Fabricant wrote these words “A new cult is rising. The digital world is coming and we are no longer bound to physical space.”
