Abstract

As part of the cultural and industrial modernisation project, fashion created not only “modern” clothes but also the rhythm of changes. In 1920s Italy it became the exponent of an accelerated vision of time. It expressed a state of ongoing transition of the wardrobe, ordered and exact, like an imaginary 24 hour assembly line. The subdivision of the wardrobe into morning, afternoon and evening clothes followed the rhythms of an ideal modern day.
