The various timelines of Fashion

Vaguely, clothing can be called as the fiber which is worn on the body.  This was the purpose for which cloths were introduced in the human civilization. As the human civilization evolved from the dark ages to the contemporary world, the purpose changed in many different ways. After developing a superior brain, humans started discovering diverse types of fibers and textiles which led to the modern clothing. The discovery of various methods of sewing and stitching shaped the new age term “Fashion”.

 The revolution of fashion took place at a very early age, but it stole the spotlight in the 20th century. There were many styles and changes that came and went by, leaving the desire for more in the hearts of our race. The revolution in 1900s was a significant one and witnessed vast changes in habiliments.
