The Future is Now

I love this video. In the 1930s, fashion designers were asked to create pieces predicting what we would be wearing in the year 2000. It's funny to think that they really weren't all wrong. The dates weren't exactly spot on, but we've gone through so many of these styles! (Except maybe the one where she has a belt that adapts her body to climatic changes. What?)

Tell me what styles you notice! And aren't we all fitted with a telephone and a radio of sorts these days?

Anything remind you of Madonna? Anything remind you of the 1960s? 


  1. I feel that in order for a futuristic design get an edge, it has to be really well crafted. But I can be very choosy when it comes to this type of designs, but once I find one, I am really smitten. Thanks for the video. :)

  2. It is really so interesting to see how some of the elements of the desingns from this old film transformed into the modernday suer fashionable artwear. I found similarities in almost every design.:-)))Thank you so very much for sharing it. Hoping you have a wonderful week. :-)

  3. The video was very educational. I enjoyed it.
    I loved the piece for the man with phone and the other things mentioned.
