If we were given the opportunity to forecast what fashion would look like in 2040, what would we predict? Suddenly images of sidewalks filled with women in Lady Gaga-esque armadillo shoes come to mind.
Buzzfeed.com recently posted a video from the 1930s where fashion designers shared their ideas on styles that they thought would be popular in 2000. From dresses that can be adaptable from morning to evening (think de-attachable sleeves!) to wedding dresses made of glass, the predications are highly amusing and in some cases, rather accurate. For instance, one idea they had was clothing using transparent net…I’m pretty sure I have this adorable Nanette Lepore number with netted sleeves sitting in my closet at home. Granted, it’s not to catch males, but hey, I’m all about multi-functional!
Now if only Bloomingdales sold electric headpieces to help all women “find an honest man”… To 2040!
