At the end of the 1980s, Geoffrey Beene predicted the future of fashion in anticipation of the millennium:
“There will be a backlash against overdressing and ostentation. Economic conditions will change things, clothes will have to work for life.”
Whoever hedged their bets in favor of Beene’s prediction enjoyed a victory in the 90s. The decade was a turning point for the world of fashion; not only in silhouette and style, but in how fashion was presented and consumed.
