Figures corset and free Exhibition of fashion and social history We can talk about fashion since the 18 th century in Europe. With spreading of the bourgeois civilization, those social economic events have been accelerated which resulted significant changes. Fashion reproduces two human efforts at once. On the one hand it declares an individual correspondence and attractive more stressed. On the other it wants to reflect keeping in step with permanent change actuality before society. In the 19 th century fashion papers has been published by the literary news in turn, in there were reports, drawings on fashion and patterns. In this century the style of women’s and men’s clothes were separated sharply from one another. The separation of manners was moved by more and more rigorous private life’s order of the bourgeois society considering feudal society. Fashion became purchasable. It was a product in possession of which anybody could demonstrate scale of values chosen by himself, which he wanted to reach and represent. Men’s everyday clothes became simple, uniform in the preferring individual achievement society but women’s dresses were more and more varied. Mainly pressed to representation women realized series of breaking of taboo under the protection of the fashion. (For example the neckline and the length of the skirt were changed.) Although they and their company gave that area there rules were accepted, and there they presented which is good form to wear clothes, in addition what kind of modes to maintain relations and contact could come. The literature of behaviour was flourished. After Knigge, from the 1801 Gottfried Immanuel Wenzel’s “Der Mann von der Welt” entitled work was one of the famous books, which could be read strongly rewritten in Hungarian also. (One copy of the original edition is on the view at the exhibition.) Following success of the work a lot of similar behaviour advisory literature was adapted to Hungarian condition. The present exhibition of the fashion history of the University’s Library concentrated around the corset-wearing, because this collection has two books quite far standing from one another in time. Both of them advise moderated wearing of this article of dress. In the 1770 Bonnaud’s explanatory work has been written, it discusses harmful results of encroachment of the corset-wearing. From the 1901 Thanhoffer’s work adverts to the corset among other unhealthy dresses. Nowadays descriptions and patterns are shocking, which delineate a might already made corset for a one year old girl. The corset had a central role in tendency of female forming of figure of the shift proportions. The manner of extreme reproduced of the body-proportions had changed by periods. In the first two third of the 19 th century according to turned over and presented the pages of fashion-papers the narrow of the waist stressed such like as the figure was grown horizontally extending with crinoline from the waist. After the 1870-ties they wanted to make a perceptible the grace of female figure expressly with vertical extension of the shape. Appearing in proportions of the female build front and rear bosses were taken into the focus of illusion-making. In the style of the secession female waist was the tightest, and the cut of corset became longer. In the earliest 20 th century women wore long, tight-fitting, high slit hobble-skirt, later the length of the skirt became shorter. In the end of the 19 th century comfortable, attractive female reform-dresses has been born due to ever increasing reform of clothes and emancipation of women. At that time the human body became in the centre of fashion’s interest instead of forms of clothes. The tightfitting article of dress outmoded only in the 1920-ties. There was an unexpected interest of searching for material of the exhibition. It was a founding of a quite good condition, stuck in illustration of sample of textile in the femalepaper from the 1803-1804 from Leipzig.
