American "Wild Western" clothing developed in the 19thCentury as an amalgamation of European and Native American attire. In theperiod following the Civil War, dime novels, plays, and Wild West Shows onWestern themes began to be popular in Europe and America. The firstdramatic narrative motion picture, TheGreat Train Robbery (1903)
, was also the first "Western" film,a genre that grew out of these Western novels and plays, and which continues inpopularity to this day. The uniquely colorful and interesting clothing worn bypeople on the frontier first captured the public imagination in the 1880's andhas been an influence on fashion ever since.
