Fashion Special: History Of Fine Fashion

Arts Channel – Tuesday 27 November, 9.00pm

A threadbare plot in a couple of words…By looking at every facet of fashion, this series offers an easy visual introduction to the history of the art and style of dressing. From the elegant era of Roman togas, to miniskirts and the current “Porno-Chic” style, the series offers a voyage through time and a look at how the evolution of fashion mirrors religious, cultural and political trends. Using spectacularly reconstructed scenes of everyday life, the central theme is how the art of dressing has been fleeting and changing, yet constant all the while. Because fashion never totally goes out of fashion, major fashion designers such as Christian Lacroix, Stefano Pilati and John Galliano share their passion and explain their debt to these five historical periods which have brought them inspiration.
