This epilogue discusses the changes in the use of the Argentine dress codes from being a simple form of a body’s embellishment to a symbol of protest. Dress codes loosened during the twenty-first century, which was evident at the onset of the Argentina’s economic collapse in 2001. During this time, mothers wore their white shawl with embroidered names of their children and employed seamstresses who wore blue smocks in order to rouse awareness in their struggle for human rights. Contemporary political struggles in Argentina have brought about significant shifts in the way fashion is designed, made, consumed, and understood. This chapter then confronts the questions on independence and modern citizenship while keeping in mind the rhetoric of dress.
