-----Fashion has always been influenced by world events and media. It has been a reflection of time. People often don't reason why certain trends are going on, but it most likely has something to do with what is going around them. Women's suffrage, World War II, the Red Scare, and the Vietnam war were all mayor events during the twentieth century. Fashion was directly influenced by the political mood these events created.
