Clothing fashion, as a global phenomenon, began to take shape in France in the 17th century.
Clothing appeared at the earliest stages of human development. Archaeological excavations told about it. With the help of plant threads, ancient people wove and tied various natural materials - leaves, straw, animal skins, etc. Dried large fruits, ostrich egg shells, tortoise shells, etc. were used as headdresses.
There is evidence that already in the era of the Upper (Late) Paleolithic (the period of life that took place 40-12 thousand years ago, when the first modern people settled throughout the earth), sewn things first appeared, i.e. people began to use bone needles, with the help of which individual parts of the earliest, as yet primitive clothing, such as bandages and capes, began to be connected into a single whole, fastening them with threads from the veins of animal or plant fibers. One example of obtaining such data is the 1964 expedition carried out by the Soviet and Russian archaeologist Otto Nikolaevich Bader to the Sungir site (the Upper Paleolithic site of an ancient man in the Vladimir region, discovered in 1955 during the construction of a plant). Sungir is one of the richest and most explored sites of ancient man. During the excavations, which were carried out for almost 30 years, about 70 thousand archaeological finds were made.
In the Sungir burial they found a man 40-50 years old and children - a boy 12-14 years old and a girl 9-10 years old. Archaeologists managed to reconstruct their clothes. The man was wearing a kind of long-sleeved dressed-skin shirt worn over his head (similar jackets - (anoraks) are still worn by northern peoples), as well as long leather trousers sewn together with a kind of soft leather shoes. The clothes of men and children were richly sheathed with bone beads made of mammoth tusk (up to 10 thousand pieces), in addition, there were bracelets and other jewelry made of mammoth bone in the graves.

The estimated age of the finds is 25 thousand years. However, the dates obtained in the course of research in different laboratories are very different, although they are within the period called the interstadial (the time of weak climate warming and reduction in the area of glaciers between two stages of their advance during the same glaciation). According to research at Oxford University, the burial was made 29-30 thousand years ago, the University of Arizona gave figures - 30-33 thousand years ago, at Kiel University the figure was also obtained 30 thousand years ago.

1. In 1500 BC. e. among the ancient Egyptians, a head without a single hair was considered the ideal of female beauty. Therefore, women removed their hair with special golden tongs and rubbed their bald heads to a shine.

2. Queen Victoria considered makeup to be an invention of the devil, so women were strictly forbidden to wear lipstick. And in 1770, the government of England issued a decree that a woman who seduced a man with the help of cosmetics should be recognized as a witch.

3. America is the birthplace of French manicure.
4. In the Middle Ages, dirt and lice were considered special signs of holiness. That's why people haven't washed for years. Queen of Spain Isabella of Castile (end of the 15th century) admitted that she washed herself only twice in her entire life - at birth and on her wedding day. The original task of the famous French perfume was to mask the stench of years of unwashed body with a sharp and persistent smell of perfume.

5. In ancient Rome, only prostitutes wore shoes with heels. Heels helped the “priestesses of love” stand out in the crowd.

6. In the Victorian era, there was a strange fashion for a photo with dead relatives. When someone died from the family, a photographer was invited to take pictures so that the deceased seemed alive. Sometimes the photographer, when developing the picture, painted the eyes of the dead so that they seemed even more alive.
