American Fashion Design is Dominated by A Clean-cut, Urban, Casual Style; Reflecting the Athletic, Health-conscious Lifestyles of Urban City-dwellers

 A designer who helped to set the trend in the United States for sport-influenced day wear throughout the 1940s and 50s was Claire McCardell.

Many of her embroidery digitizing designs have been revived in recent decades.
Famous American brands and digitizing designers include Vera Wang, Bill Blass, Calvin Klein, Bob Mackie, Anna Sui, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera,Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger, Geoffrey Beene, Oleg Cassini, Perry Ellis, Kenneth Cole,James Galanos, Todd Oldham, Donna Karan, Liz Claiborne, and Nolan Miller.
This reading can be confirmed by a fortunate fact: quipus regularly contain sums in a systematic way. For instance, a cord may contain the sum of the next n cords, and this relationship is repeated throughout the quipu.
Sometimes there are sums of sums as well.
Such a relationship would be very improbable if the knots were incorrectly read.
Some data items are not numbers but what Ascher and Ascher call number labels.
They are still composed of digits, but the resulting number seems to be used as a code, much as we use numbers to identify individuals, places, or things.
Lacking the context for individual quipus, it is difficult to guess what any given code might mean.
Other aspects of a quipu could have communicated information as well: color-coding, relative placement of cords, spacing, and the structure of cords and sub-cords.
Hair (both human and animal) mainly consists of a protein, keratin, the fibers of which give the inner core of hair a great deal of strength.
Hydrogen bonds and disulfide bonds link the chained amino acids that make up hair.
Hydrogen bonds break and re-form easily on exposure to water, but disulfide bonds (responsible for curl, among other properties), can be broken only via chemical means.
Under examination with a microspectrophotometer, scientists have discovered that high heat, UV exposure, and even artificial lighting can be quite damaging to human hair. 
Wool, too, suffers in the sun—the fleece of sheep allowed spending too much time in the sun before shearing accepts little dye when sheared from their backs, compared to their underbellies, as a result of disulfide bonds broken by UV light.
Heat and a wide variety of insects, too, are deleterious to woolen textiles.
Wool has a high resistance, however, to fungi and bacteria, provided it is free from sizing and soaps; further, wool can absorb three times its volume in water and requires a bit of humidity to remain viable.
