Fashion is a Show

Explore the role that fashion plays in our lives as a system that has been built through the centuries from the Renaissance, and allows each person to construct their identity. This lecture will retrace a century of the history of fashion from its aristocratic origins, ending with the spectacle of today's fashion, omnipresent in the streets of cities and on social networks.  

Originally, fashion was used by kings, queens, and courtiers as a symbolic affirmation of their power. By the 19th century, fashion became more democratic as couturiers took over the staging of fashion. Fashion was shown in pictures in magazines, or in the first fashion shows, which people flocked to in order to admire the outfits of the women dressed by the fashionable couturiers. Fashion was even exhibited as art during the first Worlds Fairs. Just as a costume is essential for an actor to embody his character on stage, so fashion offers clothes that allow everyone to play their role in society.
