Think about today’s session and last weeks’. Write about a decade of fashion in 20th or 21th Century. Illustrate your blog post. What is the significance of your chosen decade?
The most distinct difference between the 20th and 21st centuries is the development of the technology. In my opinion, the 20th century more focused on the design and usually was impacted by social and cultural issues such as the world war, music and style icons but the 21st century more than that. The significance in the 21st century is the much-improved technology: the Internet and mobile phone. Because of these technologies, the customers’ consumption pattern has been changing so fast and differently compared to the 20th century. For example, there are no more boundaries amongst many countries then we can buy any clothes that we want from any countries at any time. Moreover, since we can easily access to the up-to-date fashion trend every day on the Internet or mobile, the retail interval has been shortened much more than before. Besides, so many changes relating to the development of technology have been emerging in the fashion industries. Maybe in the near future, it could be realised that when we shop online we could easily and exactly select proper items that fit on our bodies based on 3D images. I am so excited about what is going to be coming up in the next century’s fashion industry.
