As the year comes to a close and another decade goes down in the books as an iconic year for the fashion industry, many fashion icons, designers, and stylists have stepped it up this year in order to truly showcase fashionable art on an elevated scale. Just taking a look back at the break threw fashion ideas like gender-neutral designs, monochromatic fashion, and vintage fashion ideas.
Recently in the media, it has been shown that Beyonce is releasing her ivy park collection as a gender-neutral brand. This is a truly revolutionary idea for fashion, and many consumers are excited to see the turn out for 2020.
The truly bold idea Adidas is using while collaborating with Beyonce is genius. To finally rid the world of the boundaries of gender when it comes to clothing. Gender-specific garments are slowly but surely coming to be a thing in the past. You can see the world changing for the better as people are finally breaking free of the restrictions on fashion identity to understand who they want to be.
Today‘s designers are finally giving these unspoken souls a voice and a true platform to showcase that gender-neutral equality. It‘s time to truly brighten the mind of the individuals around the world to this aspect because it has blockaded the mind into believing that gender isn’t meant to be abandoned. That mindset alone has been holding back the true meaning of fashion in the clothing industry. Clothing is meant for the people, not a gender.
Clothing and style are a unique form of art seen across the world and communicates to the world that everyone is different in their own way. In the years to come, I believe gender-neutral fashion ideals will be a worldwide policy that branches out to all consumers around the world, so everyone has the opportunity to express their inner truth.
If you haven’t seen from the local stylist, designers or legendary fashion icons, then you’re missing out on the new idea of monochromatic fashion, which is the idea of wearing separates of one color. Any color. Mono = one and chrome = color, so, therefore, you can wear different shades of a single color to create an overall tonal look.
This is an idea that has been overshadowed over the years of fashion communication, but has truly blossomed this year alone. The most common misconception about monochromatic colors is that it only can be done with gray & black.
Many celebrities and designers broke that misconception this year, along with new ideas on how color can be as well as a monochromatic style. The colors could include a soft eggshell white, vibrant purple, seawater blue, or even a fiery red. The colors are finally taking a stand and truly shining bright in all aspects of fashion. Many designers have taken this aspect and ran with it.
Tomo Koizumi a Japanese fashion designer wowed the audience this year during a runway with the splash of color. This showcase of color not only wowed the audience, but it also took the breath f, countless audience members, as well by how the execution was absolutely brilliant. This brilliant display showed the world fairy tales can truly come true.
The last look back in 2019 is vintage, vintage, and more vintage. Vintage is modern, and it’s truly popping in the fashion industry. Designers have showcased oversized blouses, wide-leg pants, and even the vintage-styled prints have all shown their faces this year. I love it when the past comes back and is revitalized to the current styles of the current clothes design.
Designers have returned to the roots of clothes design to showcase what was popular back then can still be relevant now. These vintage looks are really starting to turn heads and make a comeback into relevant fashion ideals.
These old-school fashion ideas, iconic pieces, and patterns are being seen at current runway shows, red carpets and even just everyday wear. I’m excited to see how designers intertwine the current trends and blend old-school fashion styles into today‘s fashion atmosphere. It’s making a great start, let’s hope it can end with a great finish.
All things considered, Fashion has really shined this year through many aspects. We’ve recognized pops of color, vintage, and gender-neutral ideas. I’m caused to witness how we enter a new year and a new decade for fashion. I believe in the upcoming future self-expression, and self-love is going to represent a key trend in the fashion industry.
