The History of the West Women’s Dress

Any event or celebration is incomplete without women, and for a woman, her dress for that special occasion is everything. Whether it is a party dress, cocktail dress, evening gown, modest homecoming dress, etc, it can make or break how you feel on your special day.

The history of evening gowns and prom dresses dates back to the 15th century when the royals started changing clothes in the evening for dinners and casual gatherings. It became an indicator of people’s status and rank in society. The more elaborate and exquisite the dress, the higher the rank and socio-economic class. However, fashion is also a representative of your true self and this. It is a way to express your view about life, personality, beliefs, and values.

The concept of a woman’s dress has always been there since ancient times. Early women used to wear floor-length tunics with belts. However, the material used for making these tunics varied and depended on your budget.  With the industrial revolution in the 19th century and the development of the textile sector, women’s dresses started becoming more detailed and elegant. Different fabrics were introduced, such as silk, cotton, linen, etc., to give the dresses an elite look. Variations in colors, designs, cutwork, etc., gave every dress a unique, customized, and classic look. 

Today, there are thousands of marketplaces selling women’s dresses, including formal dresses, party dresses, maxi dresses, short prom dresses, homecoming dresses, etc., all over the world, from renowned brands, such as shein, H&M, Mango, etc. to local retailers and online pages on social media. In such a cluttered market, it is often a struggle to find the perfect dress for your occasion which reflects your style.
