Fun Facts Friday: Fashion

We heard you all asking loud and clear for a fashion themed Fun Facts Friday, so here it is!


Did You Know…

> The first known images of footwear are of boots. They were found painted on the walls of a 15,000 year old Spanish cave.

> Over two billion t-shirts are sold worldwide each year.

>  In the 1500s, fashion designers showed off their designs by making doll-size clothing versions of their own fashions.

The most expensive piece of jewellery ever made for a movie cost $1 million. It was worn by Nicole Kidman.

It’s been only in the last 200 years that kids have had their own clothes. They used to just wear a smaller size of adult clothing.

> A piece of clothing is considered vintage if it’s from the years 1920 to 1960. Anything made after that time period is called retro.

> False eyelashes were first invented for a movie when a producer wanted to enhance an actress’ eyes. They were made out of human hair!

        Animal prints and furs were definitely popular in the 1980s. We only like them if they’re fake though!

      Hi Taylor! That is very exciting for your sister, we’re sure she will miss you too. She is going to have amazing adventures in Europe – try not to get too jealous of her photos and stories when she’s back, you’ll be off exploring the world before you know it! In the meantime you have GIRL:IT books and member-zine to distract you whilst she’s gone :) Team GIRL:IT xx
