This Monday we are switching things up just a bit – hope you don’t mind. Instead of photos we are giving you a video – a little film from the 1930s in which designers predicted what fashion in the year 2000 would look like – and we just had to share it with you. We know that it’s a little past the millennium mark but lets see how the predictions hold up!
Well, the actual designs may be a little farfetched, but the general concepts?? Maybe not so bad…
Follow the jump for a rundown of the style forecasts from the past.
The predictions from designers in the 1930s. And the true styles of the modern age.
A dress that can be adapted for morning, afternoon or evening. Why, they must talking about a simple sheath dress! A quick change of accessories allows this dress to be appropriate for any time of day.
Dresses made of transparent net – to catch the males of course. They are so on point with the sheer trend that has rocked the runways the past few seasons!
The disappearance of skirts. While they may not have disappeared completely, in this century ladies do have many more options. Pants, shorts, denim, leggings, jeggings – Oh my! And of course the ubiquitous jumpsuit, the ease of a dress with the comfort of pants – modern designing at its finest.
An atmosphere that scientifically maintains the correct temperature. Well, this one may not have come true quite yet – unless you’re Bill Gates that is.
A dress made of aluminum with an electric headlight to match. This one clinches it – they predicted the outrageous stylings of Lady Gaga!
Men will wear utility belts with a telephone, radio, and a container for coins, keys and candy for cuties. I certainly haven’t found this man yet (unless you count Inspector Gadget), have you? He sounds fabulous though! A telephone for quick calls, a radio to keep you dancing all night long, and sugary sweets – what more could a girl ask for?
