This woman was the first woman to wear pants regularly and in public, at a time when this type of cloth was considered exclusively for men.
Her name is Amelia Jenks Bloomer (1818-1894), a publisher of an American magazine that defended not only the equality of genres in the pages of her publication but through her actions inspired us to rebel against absurd prohibitions and to defend the right, we have as women to wear whatever pleases us in the body.Since pants weren’t accessible to women, Amelia created her own feminine trousers and did so using the fabric of her own dresses. Their first design was very similar to the Turkish pants of that time and, although they were put under the skirts, all could see.
Since pants weren’t accessible to women, Amelia created her own feminine trousers and made her own dresses too and combine them. Their first design was very similar to the Turkish pants of that time and, although they were put under the skirts, everybody could see it.
For Amelia, pants were a more functional garment for everyday life, as it helped women feel more comfortable and carefree in fulfilling their daily responsibilities.
So her first models were very loose, wide and comfortable pants, and although her style was highly criticized and was the target of many taunts, she was later recognized as a fashion icon.
Because of her courage and good taste, she gave us the opportunity to wear a wonderful garment that certainly does not make you feel sophisticated, strong and above all that makes life easier.
Today, pants are an essential piece in our closet, even more than faults and dress is synonymous with comfort, functionality and of course freedom!
