FUTURISTIC FASHION PREDICTION

It’s very interesting how people from the fast thought what fashion would look like in this millennium. If you check all videos from 1930’s to 1970’s all seems referencing the original Futurist theories expressed by the Italian futurists, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. The Futurist Manifesto, which he published in 1909, expressed hatred of everything old, especially in politics and arts. “The Futurists admired and loved everything that represents the triumph of humanity over nature.
Pierre Cardin, along with Paco Rabanne and Andre Courreges created Space Age designs at the height of youthquake in the 60’s.

But I think what we have in terms of fashion and design right now it more based on Post Modernism. Designers embraces all the advance technologies but with great reverence of the past and use all these ideas to enhance nature.


Amusing predictions by american fashion designers from the 1930s of what the well-dressed man and woman would be wearing in the year 2000.




A short clip about the gorgeous futuristic fashion of the 1960's from designers like Pierre Cardin, André Courrèges, Paco Rabanne etc. Most of the scenes are from the German TV-Show "Paris Aktuell"...
