The History of Christmas Fashion Posted on 15 Dec 12:37
For as long as there have been special occasions, there has been fashion to go along with it. Christmas is no exception, with some - like 'Fashion Santa' depicted above, taking it to a whole new level during a fashion shoot for Toronto's sprawling Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
In fact, fashion has played an important role in the development of the modern day holiday - adding to the fun for better or worse in so many of its aspects. Think for example, those crazy Christmas sweaters. However, it goes without saying that in western society, the most recognizable fashion icon is Santa himself - with his red suit and white fur trim - he's instantly recognizable in an outfit representative of his great warmth and generosity.
