This is a specific request for a hub. This request goes out to anyone with an interest in both...
fashion and history. I'd like someone to write a hub about the political, economic, social, and cultural forces that drive the movement of fashion from one thing to another.
For example, we know that the two-piece bathing suit came as a result of World War II. This had to do with rationing. Everything was rationed, including cloth.
Take a look at a picture of George Washington, noting how he's dressed. Now take a look at a picture of our forty-fourth president, Barack Obama.
The question I'd like someone to make a hub-length examination of is this: How (and indeed why) does one trans
How does the clothing of George Washington become the clothing of Barack Obama? That is the question. It seems part of it got cut off. Thanks

The ugly one piece suits were uncomfortable and designers decided to make suits that would flatter the feminine figure.
I am not qualified, as one look at my wardrobe would demonstrate.

Sometimes I stumble upon a HubPages request that could be answered by a Hub I've already written... but of course I couldn't submit another such Hub. There should be a way to use a Hub already made in order to answer a request.
