100 Years of Wedding Gowns and Lingerie
Back in April, when I first started writing, I shared a video that demonstrated the transformation of beauty trends throughout the last century as well as the fads that had instantly surfaced and just as quickly died. Since then, these “100 Years of (Fill in the Blank)” have been quite popular on Youtube. For me, these videos demonstrate why fashion is not about the labels or the amount of money spent on apparel or products. It’s a walking historical perspective of our society. Fashion shows the adaptation that society has demonstrated with cultural change. It speaks about the history of art and design. By just observation alone, you’re learning without realizing it. Every movement in art is commenced by a historical event or preceded by such. And when you really start to evaluate these eras, well, that’s when things start to get interesting. However, I’m starting to get off track and would love to discuss my fondness of Art, but this is about the 100 Years of Beauty, especially the ones I recently found.
Lucky for me, my boyfriend was browsing on Twitter and happened to come across this very obsession but in this case, it’s even better. It’s 100 Years of Wedding Gowns and Lingerie. I’ve copied both videos for your enjoyment. Perhaps it is just me, but if the lingerie video is correct, we have sincerely screwed up as time as gone on. But this could also explain why I’m such a Vintage Girl at heart. Maybe I was born in the wrong time period, either way, these are some great videos to explore. Enjoy!
100 Years of Wedding Gowns
My favorite era has to be ’45 but I’m a sucker for lace.
100 Years of Lingerie
Everything from the ’70s and prior is splendid. However, after that, it looks plain and especially cheap.
What’s your opinion?
