Suiting Everyone Exhibit, 1974

Opening night visitors view a parade of recent fashions in the "Suiting Everyone" exhibit at the National Museum of History and Technology, now the National Museum of American History. The exhibition opened September 23, 1974 and depicts 200 years of evolution and revolution in design, production and marketing of American clothing. Photographed by Alfred Harrell. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behavior and the newest creations of textile designers. Prior to the mid-19th century, most clothing was custom-made. It was handmade for individuals, either as home production or on order from dressmakers and tailors. By the beginning of the 20th century, with the rise of new technologies such as the sewing machine, the development of the factory system of production, and the emergence of department stores, clothing had increasingly come to be mass-produced in standard sizes and sold at fixed prices.
