"1960's-2000's Fashion"

Kobe Fashion Museum


By TOMOKO HORI

As a time of burgeoning mass consumerism, the 1960s became an epoch-making era for fashion. Haute couture, privately made custom-fitted high fashion, which first prospered in Paris at the end of the 19th century, faced its first reform with the introduction of ready-made prêt-à-porter clothing. Rising designers of the time took over the position of lead players in the growing fashion industry.
