From the inventions of synthetic fibers to new fashion concepts, the way we dress has had some major changes in the past century. The lovely folks at Mode have once again put it all into a wonderful video. The gorgeous faux silk dress in the opening has true Edwardian style, but the sleek designs of the 1930s and 40s are also quite striking. And, let’s not forget about pants in the work place for women, either! That was no small step, although a few industries had already begun allowing them by the 1980s. This look back at the fashion innovations of the past 100 years will make you wonder which of today’s fashion concepts will be considered “defining” 100 years from now!
