Coco Chanel Social changes In the times that Coco Chanel lived she had to be a strong and independent woman to

Survive . She quickly realized that she would need to have to make social connections with the right people. Because of this she had to put an act on to create an ideal image of herself So people would think that she was a higher class of person than she was. She didn't want To be perceived as a orphan but as a actress. Or person of higher class than she was. when questioned, Chanel would claim that when her mother died, her father sailed for America and she was sent to live with two cold-hearted spinster aunts. She even claimed to have been born in 1893 as opposed to 1883, and that her mother had died when Coco was six instead of 12. All this was done to diminish the stigma that poverty, orphanhood, and illegitimacy bestowed upon unfortunates in 19th-century France.

As far as fashion iS concerned, WW1 produced a strong discontinuity in the way women dressed (of course, the men were wearing uniforms). The increasing employment of women in industrial activities had relaxed strict dress codes, and allowed women to wear cotton trousers for the first time. As womens roles in Western society changed, modern fashion changed along with it. Easy-to-wear clothing had diffused into mainstream society, and the use of poor materials proliferated. (Wool was necessary for uniforms and interwar unemployment created a

further need for substitution and recycled materials.) Paul Poirets extravagantly-modeled business failed after WW1 erupted, as a result of his failure to understand the evolutionary landmark of the War and its impact on society and fashion. He failed to adapt to meet the modern needs of his clients, thus opening up a market for Coco Chanel. http://www.eurbanista.com/fashion-history-from-ww1through-ww2/#sthash.mHi0KZpQ.dpuf As a result of World War I and the worldwide womens suffrage movement taking place, women became much more active in society, such as participating and

volunteering in the war effort. The war also had an effect on mens fashion, delaying changes in style that would eventually take place in the next decade. Paris was no exception to these social changes, and while remaining the fashion capital of the world for fine womens clothing, it propelled womens fashion from modest and impractical to modern, sensible, and unconventional. mid decade, in fashion terms the ideal new woman was a tomboy, a garconne,

young, slim, athletic, short-haired and short-skirted, almost androgynous in appearance; a friend and an equal rather than a passive dependent There was a desire to appear two-dimensional, with boyish, shapeless styles featuring low waists and higher hemlines. The blatantly menswear-inspired outfits of the 1920s continued to reflect the social changes taking place for women, but as the decade progressed, the styles were less drastic: waistlines rose and clothes tightened some on dresses, skirts, and blouses. women began to have a more active role in society, resulting in more practical clothing. Hemlines rose slightly and clothing loosened considerably.

1920s, the flapper The flappers wore shocking knee-length dresses and were known for their bobbed hair and scandalous dances. Flappers did epitomize the Lost Generation and the excess associated with Paris in the 1920s. Flappers in Paris also set a trend that would be followed in other countries, such as the United States.

Unlike womens fashion, mens fashion was centered in London during the 1920s. Mens fashion also reflected the changes of the time. Men came back from World War I and wore the same clothes they had been wearing in the teens, before the war. Pants were fairly straight-legged and there was a trend of military-inspired jackets. Towards the middle of the decade, the style began to change, spear-headed by a trend that

began at Oxford University. Oxford Bags,or extremely wide-legged pants, became fashionable for men first in an effort to by-pass a university rule, and then became popular worldwide, drastically changing the image of fashion for men. Thank you for watching
