1930s Futuristic Fashion Predictions
I was poking around on YouTube yesterday, looking for something fun and Friday-ish to post today, and I came across this ancient clip of futuristic fashion predictions from designers of the 1930s. I actually sort of like the first look they highlight — a dress that “can be adapted for morning, afternoon or evening.” Apparently, it’s the “sleeves what does it!” you see. And I love how one designer imagines women in “AD 2000″ wearing dresses made of netting “to catch the males.” Hand’s down, the best prediction is the electric headlight women will wear in their hair to help them “find an honest man.” Interestingly, the designers were spot-on in their prediction that guys of the future would wear phones, though I’m sure they could never have predicted the fashion faux pas of the clip-on cell. And too bad our modern men don’t all carry “candy for cuties,” as the designers imagined.
