Fashion: The World and The Bee

The ‘love affair’ between humans and the bees started many centuries ago, and is it well known now that

If All The Bees In The World Die, Humans Will Not Survive!

Although the facts are well known, it is extremely disconcerting that bees have been dying at an alarming rate over the past decade or so and presently, their population in the United States is less than half of what it was at the cessation of World War II.

Even if you hate bees (because they buzz around, crawl inside your soda can, chase you, or you are allergic to them), you still need them. They are responsible for much of the food on your plate, thanks to a task that they do (called pollination) and is vital for the agriculture. One third of the global food supply is pollinated by them, which means that they keep plants and crops alive.

Honey bees represent only a small fraction of the roughly 20,000 known species of bees and they all have a role in pollination.

Back when Napoleon used a bee on his crest, this relationship became known as the ‘Napoleonic bee’. Napoleon and Josephine popularized the motif in France and introduced the bee in the world of fashion.

FASHION & ACCESSORIES

Although Napoleon was not a bee-keeper, he often wore bees embroidered on his regal garments. They also ornamented many objects in his imperial residences, and he allowed some of his highest ranking courtiers to wear them and decorate with them as well.  He had a profound love for bees, for life.

By the time the Prince of Wales took the oath by which he became Regent of England, the bee was one of the most important symbols of the power and prestige of Napoleon’s empire. And soon, the bee`s prestigious fashion reputation traveled the world.
