Emancipazione femminile, evoluzione nello stile.
Social changes, you know, are not circumscribed, but are reflected in every sphere of reality and not only that first manifested in the artistic sphere, in that world that throws a bridge between dream and reality at all, but that few can understand , interpret and intuit before the change is to "knock" materially to our door. Fashion is an expression of this subtle and sensitive knowledge original, ahead of the atmosphere that we live and live, has a "nose" special. Over 900 of this quality is manifested almost prescient in one of the fundamental human struggle for equality and democracy, for the emancipation of women, the role of women has taken a path continues to rise, and in the world fashion along the course that has dual channel so anticipate trends but at the same time confirm the perennial social readjustment. The 900 was a century that man has almost had to chase for the time being, a bit 'like the woman herself and her statement that threatened to move from the podium. Since the second industrial revolution, everything was very clear: in England textile mills began to make a big change in dress, always providing good fabrics at prices lower than those multiplying and light, colorful, exotic and decorative, very suitable for summer and Saturday dance, to a woman who could now attend all kinds of worldly environments. Between 1890 and 1910 the rise of mass production lowered costs and made affordable fashionable clothes even the poorer classes, especially after more and more widespread distribution in department stores. The fashion is presented in all its glory from the '50s onward, the world is overwhelmed by the "New Look" of the French Christian Dior, including plunging necklines and bare shoulders, and Paris became the capital of fashion, with the arrival of rock n 'roll dance halls there is only room for garters, mini skirts dresses and above all, thanks to the innovations introduced by fashion designer Mary Quant. Fashion becomes more and more unisex, inspired more by road from the dressmakers and ethnicity dominates throughout, thanks to the moral and sexual freedom conveyed by the hippies, the first to reject consumerism and ... underwear! In the '70s punk dominates London and beyond, and the level of inhibition falls more and more not only for skirts, but also for the network stockings and high heels. In recent decades, the mentality has been remarkable openness, particularly when the woman began to be increasingly present in the working world: you can see the pants and skirt, all functional heads in everyday life and in the battle for women 'equal rights. One of the emblematic figures in the revolution of the concept of femininity was surely Coco Chanel, who was able to better interpret the modernist spirit of his age, prefixing a new image of women, free, independent of man, modern and avant-garde: he knew give voice to the need for effective social reform and the role of women's lifestyle, combining elegance and sophistication with the convenience and comfort. In recent decades in fashion can no longer distinguish a particular style that defines the woman because she is no longer in a cage, can afford everything, by the essentiality to frivolity, and the role of the designer is now that of an adviser who does not imposes nothing will destroy the forms, the colors blend, blend contrasting trends, marked by a new mode of thought, more dynamic and less bigoted. The inexorable passage of time, and in our world there is no room for a reason restrictive and constrictive to guide our choices, everything is possible and everything changes. The changing role of women in society shows that we attach too much in the past and habit, remaining skeptical and afraid, let us stop at the starting point without the possibility of a glimpse of a goal, to reinvent ourselves and progress: this process applies to all but ... in heels no doubt has more style.
