First, let's focus on a particular fashion. The Latin term modus, as Wikipedia tells us, means "rule, the way the measure and so on." That is, one might think that clothing made for a particular model is fashionable. Nothing of the sort! After all, we all know the saying that fashion - very windy and changeable person, which means that the concept of fashion involves constant change, movement, the emergence of something new.

Fashion - the concept of volume. Fashionable man - a certain image, which consists of various elements, corresponding to the current fashion trends. It is important to harmoniously combine clothes (and taking into account the fabric, color, drawing), hairstyle, additional accessories and much more. Nowadays, the concept of fashion and is complemented by such seemingly unrelated to fashion things like lifestyle, level of culture, even the manner of speaking.

Some researchers have found signsthe appearance of fashion back in the Paleolithic period, when the clothes also never heard of, but born early signs of art. Ancient people have adorned themselves with drawings, later - tattoos, beads and necklaces and wood, feathers, shells, etc. The appearance of the belt is regarded asappearance of fashion on accessories.

10-8 century BC markedfashion appearance on hairstyles in ancient Egypt. And in the 5th millennium in Sumer appeared the first kroennaya clothing for women. What is notappearance of fashion?

However, historians fashion argue that in order to talk about the existence of fashion in a certain period, it is necessary to have regular presence in the change, the emergence of new rules and, of course, the people who would come up with these rules - namely, the couturier. Nothing of the sort, of course, in those days was not.

In the Middle Ages it was possible to trace some differences in clothing and hairstyles of various nations. But they, of course, due not fashion trends and the influence of culture and tradition, convenience, in the end. It is absolutely not logical to assume that you can find the same clothes from the Indian tribes living on the equator and the representatives of the northern peoples, wraps the body in the skin.

So what can be called a period of timethe appearance of fashion? Researchers believe that this is most likely the 14th century, a time when the French were more or less large production of fabrics. At the same time, the Europeans seriously carried away with changing fashions, the benefit that helped appeared two centuries ago tucks and folds, skills designing and modeling of clothes, cutting bodice.

It has long and firmly established in jewelry, made velvet and light airy fabrics, invented a lot of colors, clothes embroidered with beads and colored threads. However, the spread of a particular fashion trends have, in some countries even refuse to wear clothes, fashionable in the other, because of the inconvenience or conformity to tradition.

In the 15th centuryappears Fashion in Italy. Here not only sew clothes of different styles, but also complement the image fashionable hairstyle, hair color and lip in popular color, thus creating a certain style.

By the 17th century the fashion again asks France, styles of dresses and hairstyles of the royal court affect the dandies of Europe.

The end of the 17th century markedfashion appearance in Russia, however, it can not be called a triumphant parading. Almost immediately the king's decree it was simply prohibited: the Russians were not allowed to wear dresses and victuals to adopt foreign customs.

But with the coming to power of Peter I, all changes again. Lover of all German, Peter A., ​​literally implants citizens fashion trends of the time, mostly, of course, made in Germany dear to his heart. The emperor issued a decree, which contains a list of what can and should be worn to citizens of the empire.

Fashion magazines, which first appeared in the 17th century, we can say on recordappearance of fashion. The first edition was the magazine "Se Ladies 'Magazine', released in 1770 in London. Then such a "gloss" appeared in France and other European cities. A fashion magazine in 1779 and appeared in Russia.

However, meticulous researchers still argue that this period can not be considered "fashionable". The fact that sew clothing tailors, come up with its own customers mainly. That is, there is no one who is engaged in the development of new styles, styles and so on, to put it simply, the notorious couturier.

No fashion shows and other attributes of fashion. Instead - pictures in fashion magazines, and even a few very advanced shopkeepers guess exhibit near shops dolls (prototype mannequins), wearing certain clothes.

It was only in the 20s of the 19th century, finally, there is the profession of an artist who comes up with clothing. It happened in England when the garment industry there has reached impressive proportions, and there was a need for such specialists. It was 1820 and we can confidently be called the yearthe appearance of fashionNot to cause complaints from modern historians fashion.

From this point on fashion "gained" all their whims fully: it is constantly changing, fascinated and shocked, required imagination and considerable expenses. It covered not only the rich and idle, but also fell in the lower classes, among the common folk. Also, the fashion finally passed out of the hands of men in women's hands. Up to this point the main efforts were aimed at creating fashionable clothing for men, women's fashion was kept in the background.

Today, the development of fashion and new trends of the common man is almost impossible to follow. In addition to casual clothes and dresses "haute couture", which, at least, can be worn, create a collection that is suitable only for shows.

The appearance of fashion

Fashion designers, creating an image, take into account everything from hairstyles to make-up and nail polish.

Someone with fanaticism tracks changes in the smallest details, and someone is not interested in new directions, but both of them are involved in a network capricious lady who really rules the world from the time of its introduction.
