#1920 The style of the Republic of China
When it comes to the customs of the early times of Republic of China, western music genres such as jazz were introduced into Shanghai’s singing and dancing venues. It collided with traditional Chinese folk music and created a new wave of music, gradually forming the sound of that era.
Meanwhile people have been influenced by both the Qing Dynasty and Western culture for fashion. Abandoning the complicated costumes of the past in an attempt to express the beauty of the human body through Western tailoring, men’s clothing gradually transitioned from robes and jackets to suits, while women’s clothing became increasingly more decadent.
///1970 disco wave
Originating in France in the 1960s, disco was introduced to the United States in the mid-1960s and became popular in the early 1970s. Gradually developing into a nationwide phenomenon in the US, it soon became popular worldwide in the mid-1970s.
Fashion designers Betsey Johnson and Norma Kamali designed the iconic stretch jeans, shorts and tights. Disco was casual: put on your pair of flared pants, burn a wave head, put on a pair of toad mirrors - you’d be dancing at will with the psychedelic lights released by the spinning of disco ball in no time.
