1910: The "revolution" begins
The expanding European colonization of Africa, Middle East and Southeast Asia brought the mania for Orientalism into the Western world. Romanticized Eastern exoticism attracted western artists who actively used the Orient themes and motifs in visual arts, architecture, music and performing arts from the beginning of the XIX century.
Orientalism sneaked into the world of fashion design in the 1910s with new fabrics, like silk and chiffon, vivid colors and much more lithe, fluid and soft silhouette. These years are characterized with the popularity of flowing pantaloons, turbans, kimonos, tunics and hobble skirts.
