Beautiful Wearable Art By Wayne Weberbauer
People have been producing clothing for as far back as anyone can trace, but the modern fashion industry, with labels, magazines, and the style of the essence, emerged in the late 18th century, primarily as haute couture (“high fashion”). In the 20th century, enabled by the rise of consumer culture and technologies of mass production like the sewing machine, factory-made prêt-à-porter (“ready to wear”) brought fashion into everyday life. Due to the reliance of fashion on commerce and its predominant association with women, its status as an art form worthy of serious scholarly attention has long been debated by art historians. Clothing designers have used fashion to creatively push the boundaries of issues from beauty to gender roles—in the avant-garde designs.
