which were the most important fashion 'headlines' for 2003 ?
what shall we remember this year for?
Lets make a "that was the year of.." list, here are some ideas

*Tom Ford's departure from Gucci
*The V&R retrospective
*The rise and rise and rise of prints
*Round toe shoes
*Shine surfaces & metallics
*LV flirt with art (Murakami etc)
*The decline of lux labels
*Black loses its grip
*Satin cargos
*Asian influences


please add your own list and stay true to important fashion headlines regardless if you liked /agree with them or not

here Andrew Gn's take on Asian

Great topic, Lena!

Exuberance was on of the best things that happened to fashion this year. I mean the world was in a state of global uncertainty and anxiety and then suddenly BAM! designers responded to that by making optimistic and fun collections wishing good will on troubled times. That made the most gorgeous Spring on record (Spring '03.) Definetly grace under pressure!

The most memorable was John Galliano's S/S '03 collection!

Sport was big, too. Scuba was ahead of the pack with designers like Ghesquiere and Lang doing this.

Cavalli went ultra-glitzy...wait, that happens every year...

D&G went a bit cartoony with their cartoon opera jacket, no? And Moschino went a bit too cartoony...

the return of fifties elegance
the reinterpretation of sportswear fabrics
the re-emergence of both the glove and the over-the-knee boot
the death of jean-as-chic fashion
individualism
the piece (the perfect pant, the perfect coat, the perfect skirt) as accessory.

just a few that come to mine
