Take a journey through time and explore fashion of the 20th century.
You’ll start your journey in Paris in the early 1900s at the center of the haute couture movement. You will witness the impact of the First World War in the field of fashion: how austerity led to less frivolous, more androgynous dress, which eventually gave rise to more freedom and independence for women. Through the roaring twenties and the great depression, the flower power movement, the economic prosperity of the 80’s and the dawn of the power suit, you will continuously explore the relationships between politics, economy, fashion and social and cultural norms. And you’ll be designing and creating your own shirts, skirts, hats belts and jewelry that combine traditional fashion with high technology.
