Dancing dots

In tune with today's outfit I find interesting to make a journey in the history of polka dots skirt.The beginning of the polka dots lasting role in fashion history  it was in the 20th century. In 1928, Mickey Mouse's female companion, Minnie, was born in the Walt Disney illustration studio dressed in a polka dot skirt, a trademark of the animated icon.
Some people associate polka dots with Venezuelan fashion designer Carolina Herrera, who used polka dots on most of her dresses during the late 80s and early 90s, but the French designer Coco Chanel favoured dots in the 1920s and then during the 1940's and '50s, the polka dot graced the gowns of female celebrities from Marilyn Monroe to Elizabeth Taylor, during the same time period Christian Dior began to release his notable hourglass dresses in spotted prints.
Yet, the 1950s was the polka dots biggest decade and the polka dot pattern has been often associated with the 50’ ever since, the 1980s were the decade of polka dot accessories.
The term "polka dot" first appeared in the 1880s when both the dots and the dance were especially popular, traditionally polka dots were used in the clothing of flamenco dancers and performers.
In 2006, polka dot skirtsdressesscarves and tops became a fad in the United Kingdom. These days we can include it in the pin-up style.
Hug you all <3

In ton cu tinuta de astazi gasesc interesant sa facem un periplu in istoria fustei "polka" cu buline. Inceputul rolului bulinelor in istoria modei a fost in secolul XX. In 1928, partenera lui Mickey Mouse, Minnie, a prins viata in studiourile Walt Disney fiind imbracata intr-o fusta polka cu buline, devenita marca comerciala a pictogramei animate.
Unii atribuie bulinele designer- ului de moda venezuelean Carolina Herrera, care a folosit buline pe cele mai multe dintre rochiile ei la sfarsitul anilor '80 si inceputul anilor '90, defapt designerul francez Coco Chanel a folosit materiale cu buline mai devreme, in 1920 iar, mai apoi in anii '50 respectiv '40, bulinele au aparut pe rochiile unor celebritati ca  Marilyn Monroe si  Elizabeth Taylor, in aceeasi perioada de timp Christian Dior a inceput sa creeze rochiile cu o crioala de tip clepsidra cu acelasi imprimeu cu buline.
Cu toate acestea, anii '50 sunt considerati a fi deceniul bulinelor iar, modelul de polka cu buline a ramas in istorie ca fiind reprezentativa perioadei anilor 50 ", iar anii '80 s-au remarcat ca fiind perioada accesoriilor cu buline.
Termenul de "buline polka", a aparut pentru prima data in anii '80, cand atat dansul cat si bulinele au fost deosebit de populare.In mod traditional, bulinele au fost utilizate ca imprimeu al hainelor dansatorilor de flamenco si al artistilor interpreti.
In 2006, fuste "polka" cu buline, rochii, esarfe si topuri au redevenit un trend in Marea Britanie. Astazi il putem include in stilul pin-up.
Va imbratisez cu drag <3
