The whole fashion history represented in short, but in great detail. I like when history is represented in tables leaving all the unnecessary information behind. Good job!



Oh, it is a very interesting theme for me, to know how the fashion developed



It is very true that this mental map presents the history and evolution of fashion in our current time, as now also fashion is an almost cultural event or activity, it is more or less a mover of people and ultra-avant-garde thinking, in the face of the imminent current situation. I'm talking about animal cruelty presented by most companies. People who like fashion have taken out a vegan handbag to compete and change the use of natural leather.



It's very interesting to know how the fashion industry has developed. It's funny that now you can be a designer yourself. I don't have a workshop or shop, but I wanted to create custom design clothes. With the help of Printful, I create and sell clothes in my online store, and the service staff are engaged in delivery
