THE YEAR IN FASHION: 1998




As I was searching through fashion documentaries to watch I found this rather dated American one on the year 1998. This just so happens to be the year I was born and it was monumental in the fashion industry. From Donatella's debut after tributes had been paid to Gianni Versace at the Met Gala to the rise of young American designers taking on Parisian houses, a lot was happening. Below are some observations I had:

TOM FORD AT GUCCI


Far from the Gucci we adore today, Tom Ford's time at the brand in the 90's achieved well executed minimalism. He focused on small details of the garments like a tiny logo which he said let people know it was Gucci. I loved his use of underwear combined with outerwear garments as it felt much more innovative than what other designers were achieving with the minimalist macro trend at the time.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN


In a time of minimalism, McQueen, nine shows into his career, was pushing boundaries and creating innovative garments and shows. His Spring 1998 show saw rain fall onto the catwalk, drenching models with choppy haircuts in provocative designs. At the time this was so exciting and innovative, yet as designers now try to achieve controversy, it leaves me questioning what is actually controversial and what is now socially normal.
