i love anything to do with what the world was like in the 1900′s before i was born. this video is from the 1930′s and gives predictions on what fashion will be like in the year 2000. some of their ideas made it sound like we were going to be the jetson’s – “an electric belt will adapt the body to climatic changes,” but one of the ideas was spot-on for fashion in 2010 – “another designer goes so far as to say skirts will disappear entirely.”
this as we know has been true for many years, but what’s interesting is in this video the woman is wearing a jumper (or romper, or whatever you want to call it), which has become the hot new trend of the season. it’s not something i would be able to pull off and i haven’t seen anyone wearing one, but i found these jumpers/rompers online and think they are beautifully made and look good on these models. what do you think of the jumper?
thank you to the always fabulous free people blog for posting this video!
