The Future of Fashion Design

17:36


It cannot be denied that fashion design is constantly moving, evolving into new styles, sometimes so quickly that it is difficult to keep up. Whilst I may be a novice in the fashion world, I see no reason why it should start slowing anytime soon. However, there are certain trends that for me stand out from the ever changing wardrobe of fashion. Whether that is because they intrigue me so I take more notice or they are genuinely a more loved piece, I do not know but they all seem to have one thing in common: they are all rejuvenated designs of our past. 

Take the mom jeans, for example, a recent and distant craze of the everyday fashion world. I bought my first pair of mom jeans last August, after months of admiring them, and I continue to wear them today. The day I bought them, I came back to show my mum and the first thing she said was how strange it was to see them on me, saying it was exactly what she used to wear when she was my age.

It would seem the mom jean has completed a full generational loop... Back in the 90s, these were constantly worn by everyone, from celebrities to everyday people, making them a true staple in everybody's wardrobe. And like so many other great fashion trends of our past they have been reinvented to become one of the most popular fashion trends of the last two years. Five years ago there would have been a very, very few people who would have felt it was cool enough to wear oversized jeans, jeans which supposedly disguise a flattering figure (if the recent fashion bloggers have proved anything it is that this is definitely not the case).

Living close to London and coming of an age where I feel more comfortable wearing the clothes I like and becoming less concerned with what other think, I feel that fashion has also taken a more liberal approach to allow this to happen, with younger designers begin to bring a greater sense of freedom to everyday fashion design. And this will continue to happen as each generation become less restrained by conventional ideas. Fashion will become a lot more about what each individual style. There will be less general trends which have a mass following. Instead, trends will blend into one, old and new until it is not about what is believed to be the 'now thing' that everyone feels they must follow. It will become a way to directly express oneself. Fashion design is already developing to make it easier and more expectant for people to use their clothes as a medium to express themselves, to go against what is seen as 'normal'. Individuality is now being promoted. It will keep being promoted until there is no longer any need as being you will become the new normal.
