Ten years on and the clothes of 2000 still aren’t here

11 February 2010

Maybe the New Romantics of the 1980s were as close as we’ll ever get to the fashions that are predicted here, but if the 1930s were to be believed, AD 2000 was supposed to be all about adaptable dresses that the wearer could change according to the time of day, glass wedding gowns and mechanoid men with futuristic pockets filled with sweets.

Are you watching this Messrs Marks, Spencer, George, Next and St Laurent? You’re cheating us out of what’s rightly ours to wear!

    Hey, the predictions for the bloke weren't that far off, apart from "there'll be no more shaving". Can't wait for that day to come, but unfortunately it never will because the shaving industry is just too big.
