Am I allowed to bring this up in here ? I'm not sure maybe. I find this all very interesting. Anyway you know how each decade has a defining look both in terms of shapes , tailoring , fabrics and colours. What exactly defined the 90s ? Or is it too early to see that now ? I was reading on the fashion era website but there is nothing there that I can really recognise , although I did grow up in the 90s. Ha I'd love to see the people who think that fashion people are shallow having a read of this thread.

I come from a small town. The majority of people here are older. I am a younger person. I do not notice many people picking up on trends or fashions. However, I do notice it in bigger, more urban areas.

If there was one I am guessing it was probably the grunge look. Plaid shirts, raggedy sweaters, long hair, Doc Martens, Woodstock 1994, Marc Jacobs' collection for Perry Ellis, etc. But this probably only applies to certain youthful segments of society.

Among working adults I think that the whole business casual look became very strong in the '90s, especially evident in computer/technology industry. It's since then it's just been downhill as far as formality goes, especially outside of major cities.

Ohh grunge of course. When I think back all I can think of is round neck shift dresses.

for me, the 90's were the epitome of minimalism

trying to put my 2 cents in, fashion today does still reflect socio-economic situation as it always had..
individuality does play central role since our lifes seem veen more 'oppressed' (work, debts, politics) than ever before, then think 'melting pot'.. big scale imigration, globalisation, frequent travelling , huge nostalgia, uber huge global companies and of course global information has created a much wider spectrum than before.
People are more individual and also much more 'tribal' than they used to be, eg. the vintage 'group', the balenciaga bag 'group', the designer lebels 'group', the urban/juicy 'group'
like tott said, people dont really want to be dictated what's right to wear and what's wrong and i think they are right

this is not the happy 50s when (almost) everyone was 'innocent' and ready to accept the 'new' ideas being offered at that time, this is not the 'revolutionary' 60s with mini & maxi comming up, this is not even the bohemian 70's or the career influenced 80's.. its a mix of all of past decades plus more, and this 'more' is 'rebelion against what i'm supposed to wear'

making 'it' mine >
is one of the strongest mega trends at the moment, this is an 'anti-comformity' attitude and does apply in the most of the population, regardless if they follow fashion or not.. people like to wear what they want and bring trends/labels/fashion in their own life the way they see fit..

anarchy? democracy? melting pot? fine mess?
Thanks for this.... great insight lena...

P.S. I haven't been notified for new posts on this thread for almost a week....

at the time it seems like the 90's are more undefinable than 40's/50's/60's ect but lookin back it makes you think that they were thinking the same thing. it was wierd- i was reading a vogue book from the late sixtees-it was about how to look stylish, and they were saying not to follow trends...such as the hippy trend, the sailor one AND the Russian one!!! that made me think....

also i feel sorry for sienna miller for having every thing she wears put into the magazines like Heat- she must want to look origianal- its getting harder for normal people because of the fashion masses but for her....
