Every day this week, starting tomorrow, I am going to do posts on fashion through the years starting with the early 1920s. From flappers to poodle skirts, I will fill you in on the fashion history. So sit back, relax and enjoy reading about the history of trends!

Fashion Illustration is a medium in which creative expression can be given free rein and designers can explore ideas before the realities of budgets, fabrics, or physics intervene. Fashion designers’ sketches reveal inspiration as well as color and style. When learning to transfer ideas onto paper, designers are taught to find their own style. Each designer should have theier own unique design that sets their designs, or even their drawings, apart from any other designer. Nothing captures a fashion moment or mood quite like a designer’s first drawing for a dress.
Here are a few pictures of distinct fashion illustrations. (I couldn’t find many specific designer sketches.)
The ‘We Are One’ concert held on Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial was a star-studded event to kick off a weeklong celebration of Obama’s Inauguration on Tuesday, Jan. 20th. Thousands upon thousands of concert-goers braved the cold to see the biggest names in music and entertainment including performances from Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Sheryl Crow, U2 and Mary J. Blige; as well as speeches from Martin Luther King III, and actors Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks. In celebration of the inauguration week, we should all wear a little red, white and blue! Patriotism is defined as love of and devotion to one’s country.
Ralph Lauren has created many beautiful collections with patriotic colors taking over.
Chanel has an overindulgence of patriotic shoes. If you go for this look, please lose the ankle purse.
Even celebrites are going for a patriotic look!
I researched back to the Fashion Week in 2000 and couldn’t believe what I found. In just about 9 years, the fashion has already changed dramatically.
