The 1930s fashion wave: How fashion turned from a social trend into a cultural phenomenon
- by admin
It was the 1920s, and fashion was in full swing.
In the space of a decade, a number of British fashion houses began to launch their own line of designer clothes, often in defiance of the strict rules of Victorian dress.
But as they were starting to open their own shops, they also became the targets of anti-fashion mobs, who tried to ban them and their brands.
The trend of the 1920’s was one of defiance, with the clothing designers being defiant and the fashion houses defiant.
It was a bold move by the fashion industry, but one that was met with a response from the government.
It began to take on the characteristics of an organised crime, with police departments and the police and the courts making a concerted effort to ban the brands of fashion designers and retailers.
These laws were based on the notion that they were dangerous and could be used to suppress the fashion and fashion-related industries.
The idea of the “anti-fashion” movement, which emerged around the same time as the First World War, was that it was the work of an underground mob of fashion-industry bosses and politicians to suppress fashion.
The first wave of anti‑fashion legislation in the 1920 and 1930s was a response to this perceived threat.
The most famous of these laws was the Act for the Control of Fashion Manufactures (1931) which introduced an offence of causing to be exhibited in public a work of art which was deemed to be indecent, obscene or otherwise objectionable.
It also gave the police power to make arrests if they thought that a work was in breach of this law.
Other laws were introduced that sought to prevent the sale of items that were deemed to cause offence.
The Victorian law banning indecent articles was passed in 1931.
The Act for Prohibition of the Sale of Artificially Immoral Goods (1932) was introduced in 1935.
The act banned the sale, display or importation of items deemed to offend morals or morals in general.
The law was extended to include all types of goods.
It outlawed the manufacture, distribution, sale or import of certain kinds of articles that had the potential to be obscene.
The Australian Anti‑Fashion Law (Act for Prohibition and Prohibition of Manufacture of Immoral Artificles and Immoral Instruments) (1939) was passed a year later.
This act made it an offence to manufacture or supply an article of art, or a product of art or a design, which was “immoral or indecent” or “incriminating”.
The Act also required the government to make a report on any “inherent evils” in a production or sale of an article or product of an art, including the “moral” or the “immorality” of the product. The anti‑fashion movement was founded on two key assumptions.
First, that the art and design industry was a lucrative industry and it had to be protected from the effects of anti–establishment sentiment.
Second, that it had a social value that could be monetised through taxation.
The social value of the art industry was central to the anti‑establishment ideology, which had a huge impact on the development of the fashion sector.
The main aim of the anti-fashion campaigners was to ban or severely restrict the sale and display of “immeasurable” and “inconceivable” art and objects.
The aim of these legislation was not to stop art from being produced but to reduce it to such a state that it could be easily stolen.
In reality, the art community had been able to resist this process by taking on the role of “publicity officers”, or artists.
But once this role had been taken over, the artists were also at a disadvantage because they were subject to restrictions on the amount of money they could make.
They were also able to lobby the government in their favour, but this would only have a limited effect.
In addition, it would be extremely difficult for artists to get a court order under the law.
The only way that the artists could get their goods banned was if they could demonstrate that they had an existing licence or a court warrant to sell their work.
In 1931, the Australian Art Industry Association (AIAA) set up a taskforce to look at ways of getting the art sector onside with the anti‐fashion authorities.
The taskforce set up two taskforces to look into the legal aspects of the law, and the first taskforce concluded that there were no existing legal protections for the art industries.
However, in the 1930s the art trade was already in the midst of an “industrial revolution”, and it was not clear how far this would extend to other industries.
It would not be until the 1940s that the arts and crafts sector started to see an economic recovery.
In 1943, the government introduced the Art Industries Act to create a new category of industries, the arts, that were regulated and could only be
