EDFD207 Fashion History II 3 cr.


This survey course picks up where Fashion History I left off, examining the increasingly changing fashions of the 1750s through the early 21st century. The course will address the aesthetic, economic, social, and political forces that impacted the development of styles during these two hundred and fifty years. Discussions and research will be global in perspective, taking into account issues of ethnicity, class, and sexuality. The course will include field trips to examine actual historic garments to help develop critical thinking and “seeing.” Students will utilize their critical thinking skills to understand fashion as an art form, a commodity, and a symbol of cultural and personal expression.
