Then and Now

The style of clothes that people wear has changed over the years. The fabric or cloth used to make clothes has changed too.

Fashions have changed because people's lifestyles have changed, and also because television and magazines influence the way people dress.

Today there is more of a variety of clothing to choose from. There is also a greater range of fabrics available for making clothes.
