Life is not a bed of roses and not everyone is born with silver spoons and forks in their mouth so that’s how the world of fashion is evolved.
Fashion’s birth has been very slow through the womb of Mother Earth,cautiously going from Primates being completely naked till present day where fashion,trends,forecasting rule and rock the world.
So guys and gals as we always talk about global fashion accross British,American Empires we need to understand that the influence has been homogeneosly been through vast cultural diversity of all the continenents spread accross the world.So in this blog,i write about the influx of fashion at Pan Global scale.

In this century that the high waisted empire gown was introduced as an iconic fashion piece; and the empire dress started featuring a square neckline.There was trend of empire dresses,parasols and hats.P.S..If you compare with that time sitting in a time machine you would have been shocked how women could carry stuff like that almost everyday!!
In 1900 s there was eruption of haute couture, translated literally as “high sewing,” in Paris.
