Fashion exhibition takes look at 50s glamour shots on social media – and says it's more than 100 years too late
For the past 100 years, we've been told we all have it. That it will never go away.
That, the fashion industry thinks, there has been a complete and utter'reversal' of fashion from the 1950s and 60s to the recent past when celebrities such as Barbara Stanwyck and Tina Turner turned 50 and moved to New York.
There was an explosion of glamour – in fashion magazines, on television, in newspapers – which only amplified the 'fash' – everything that is not glamorous.
We were given a sense that this was all going to be OK.
The era of fashion, we were told, would go away in its entirety. We would no longer live with the image of all the fashionable glamour that once glittered in the pages of the Daily Mail.
The new era was going to be more'realistic', more contemporary – in the way we looked, we thought we looked – less defined.
It's time to get up off the sofa and let the glamour go. So begins the 60s-70s fashion'reversal'.
When, about three years ago, I was working for the London-based magazine of the same name, a fashion writer had this to say: 'The magazine's editors were convinced that by 1960, all fashion in England would cease to have any relevance. And of course, no one b김천출장마사지elieved them anyway.'
But as the decade wore on, with women increasingly wearing skirts, and all fashion sh더나인카지노owing more skin, it seemed that the glamour had been gone forever. I've been surprised and sad this has never been fully said about us.
No longer glamour
How do we understand this current fashion trend?
The answer begins with the 1970s and '80s and the new-wave of fashion which took in many of the 'trendy' figures (such as, for instance, Audrey Hepburn, Naomi Campbell, Naomi Campbell's daughter Naomi), and their looks.
The media, especially magazines, then focused attention and money and attention to celebrities, often leaving the glamour for the younger generation.
It had taken over a decade before we all knew who the stars of the future were. 우리카지노계열But now, as we watch the glamorous figures of the future in fashion, we begin to realise that they are not all like us.
