What do you think you would wear 70 years from now?
I recently came across this Youtube video – a film made in the 1930’s which tries to predict what people will be wearing in the year 2000. The film obviously missed its mark in trying to predict this, but some of the pieces, I think, come close – look at the guy wearing a telephone. Predictions of the cell phone? Interesting to watch, isn’t it?
Having studied fashion and textiles in college, I learned long ago that fashion runs on a pendulum. What comes and goes, comes back and of course, goes again.
So, what do you or I predict will be the fashion 70 years from now?
Brilliant and I’ve seen shoes like the ‘cantilevered’ ones!
Thanks! Yes, I have too. I remember wearing stacked shoes in college years ago.
I was about to make the same comment as Lucid Gypsy regarding the shoes!
Thanks for sharing this video!
You’re welcome! Love the comments!
Amusing film clip!
I can remember doing a school project on fashion when I was 8 years old. I predicted that clothes would get simpler in the future and drew a sort of baggy outfit. About 2 decades later tracksuits and shellsuits were all the rage!
That’s a pretty good prediction! 🙂
My prediction seems to be the same as the ones in the video. Ahihihi … Ridiculous, outrageous, and overly done fashion and designer’s clothes.
That was fun to watch. Maybe we’ll go backwards and start wearing all natural fibres again. In my dreams!
Oh good idea!
I took a historic costume class in college and remember working on assignments where we had to look back in history to find styles that resembled what was in current fashion. It was an interesting project.
