Knowledge International Journal
Like any phenomenon and objectified human activity, the implication of the historical costume of the19th century in the fashion of the new century is not accidental, but has its roots and protoforms. That is why it isnecessary to examine these protoforms very briefly, and then to successfully explain what is happening on theirbasis. The framework in which the given study is placed has the following parameters – historically it concerns thefashion of the 19th century, taking into account the
... lutionary influence of the French Bourgeois Revolution, thevisual expression of the fashionable French women's suit, as well as the male business English suit is taken intoaccount. On the other hand, the most significant and successful fashion collections are examined in terms ofapplying the implication and conceptual dimensions of the historical costume of the 19th century in the practice ofwomen's fashion designers at the beginning of the 21st century. The purpose of the study is most concentrated inshowing the transfer of the successful historical fashion decisions of the costume from the 19th century, which are"noticed again" in the fashion costume at the beginning and the first decade of the 21st century – specifically in thistext 2004, with the key terms of implication and conceptual dimensions of 19th and 21st century fashion costume inthe most successful designer collections. As a researcher, my attention is drawn to the potential contained in theimplication of fashion costume, which is increasingly penetrating the artistic culture of designing and producingfashion clothes and accessories. On the other hand, the wide consumption and strong influence of fashion on humanlife impose the need not only for a philosophical or sociological analysis of the new phenomena of culture, but alsofor a comprehensive and in-depth scientific-theoretical study of the implication in fashion, covered by postmodernistideas. The question arises: what are the reasons for individual achievements and finds of one era to be preserved andcarefully transferred to other eras, even at the risk of the re-contextualization of the image originally created andembodied in clothing. Today, no one wears historical costumes just to protect themselves from the elements. Thehistorical costume and the fashion and artistic trends it embodies make it an expensive museum piece. One learnsfrom the taste of the old masters of clothing, from the combination of fabrics, colors and ornaments, from the ideasthat the modern person (whether professional or ordinary consumer) can draw from the found cultural artifacts in thefield of children's, women's fashion or the men's business suit.
