Importance of denim in history
Nowadays, it is difficult to find a person who has not enjoyed wearing a garment made of denim, such as a jacket or a pair of jeans; however, back on the 19 Century, this fabric was mainly used for work wear. This fabric has been taking more importance through history since it was first invented.
“Denim came to change the way of manufacturing clothes, it has been present for decades and each new year it reinvents itself thanks to the new garments with different styles developed by designers who love to play with this fascinating fabric”, declared Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim about this topic.
During 1830 and 1840, there was a boom with the work wear manufactured on this material, which was commonly used on clothes for men; however, during the 19 Century it was common to use it for women wear as well.
At the beginning of the 20th Century, denim was used in different types of clothes, from prison costumes to naval uniforms.
The jumpsuit saw the day of light during World War II, when many women had to be left and home and start taking the jobs that men used to do, for that, there was a need to create a garment that would be easy to manufacture and would offer them the comfort to move free and work easily with.
Denim has been seen during different stages, each time used to represent different types of fashion, such as the pop, hippie and rocker.
Designers started to take a look at this fabric and started popularizing it more on the fashion world bringing new and daring designs that everyone started to love, now on the 21th Century we see different ways to express fashion with denim each new season over the runways.
Denim began being used as a fabric for work wear, but it has evolved so much that many of us cannot imagine life without it.
“Nowadays, denim is one of the most popular textiles around the world, with people joining to the denim fever, it is more common each day to see a garment made of this versatile fabric occupying a space in a wardrobe”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.
