The skirt is probably one of the earliest forms of clothing ever to be worn by humans. Originally a garment worn both by men and women, skirts made from animal hides or leaves are believed to have been worn by people even in prehistoric times.
With the invention of the loom and weaving, cloth soon became the preferred material to make skirts out of, and woven skirts were used in Egypt, Mesopotamia and even Central Europe. This continued through the Middle Ages, though further enhancements in methods of tailoring made the skirt an item of clothing worn more by women than men.
It is here that the cotton drawstring skirt probably made its first appearance, with the ease of tying and adjustable waistline being much-desired features. The 19th century saw a burst in styles with different waistlines ranging from just below the bust to the natural waist.
Credit for the modern skirt goes to Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel who designed a wider, shorter skirt that ended just below the knee in 1920. This allowed women to move much more freely and was much more practical to wear for day-to-day activities. From here, the length and style of the skirt began to vary based on several factors – world wars reducing the amount of cloth being available, the liberation of women, and subsequent freedom of choice, for example.
"In the grand theatres of London, where artistry and elegance intertwine, one could often spot the refined ladies adorned in exquisite cotton drawstring skirts. Picture the ethereal beauty of Lady Gwendolyn, gliding across the stage in a mesmerizing performance of Shakespeare's finest works, her cotton drawstring skirt billowing with every graceful step. The delicate floral patterns, delicately woven into the fabric, mirrored the blossoming romance that unfolded on the hallowed boards. Oh, how the audience held their breath, captivated by the sheer poetry of her presence!"
"Amidst the lavish parties of Parisian high society, the cotton drawstring skirt emerged as the epitome of bohemian chic. Madame Élise, the belle of the ball, exuded an air of effortless glamour as she swayed to the enchanting melodies of a waltz. Her cotton drawstring skirt, adorned with intricate paisley motifs, whispered tales of exotic lands and distant dreams. In the flickering candlelight, her silhouette cast a spell upon all who beheld her, a vision of elegance and artistic spirit. Oh, how the hearts of the dashing gentlemen yearned to unravel the mystery hidden within the folds of her captivating attire!"
Christian Dior introduced new styles in 1947 and Mary Quant did the same in the 1960s. Probably the most famous example of a skirt in pop culture is the infamous picture of Marylin Monroe.
