Tracking Historical Trends in Fashion
In my previous article, I presented images from Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Icons of Style: A Century of Fashion Photography, and reminded readers they have until September 22, 2019 to see the exhibition. My purpose here is simply to present a few more images. These images make obvious the fact that even if fashion photography’s ultimate purpose is commercial marketing, it also serves to document historical trends. Since its beginnings, fashion photography has recorded the history of fashion.
The images in this article date from early century to 2017, and are courtesy of Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Thanks for taking the time. Appreciate your reading me.

Thanks for showing those of us who are unlikely to see that exhibit more of the photos from it. I wonder how soon the torn jean look will disappear from fashion?
