    There used to be a theory about fashion period, which is about 70 years, i.e. fashion design is a spiral rising. In another words, clothes several years ago are old-fashion, but those changed based on styles several decades years ago or even the same styles are fashion. What do you think?

      I can't imagine myself wearing these dresses. I like the way it looks. It echo femininity but still I don't want to wear it.. I want comfortable clothes may not be as fashionable as that.

        So do I. After all, we live in a modern time. But the theory talks about "spiral rising", which means innovative change based on old design. For example, I have a suspender with classical laces and buttons. I really like it. Modern designers turn to old times for creative ideas, which is a good way. Of course, those officially classic costumes are only appriciated as cultural heritages, or used in special occassions. smile

    I think fashions in the past did repeat, almost on a hundred year basis.  Women's fashion of the early 20th century, with its emphasis on the empire line, was very similar to the fashions of the early 19th century.  The fashions of the 1750s, 1850s and 1950s placed the emphasis on the full skirt, whether through use of the crinoline or several petticoats.  However, I think that cycle has come to an end, as clothes now owe little to style, and more to functionality.  People mostly dress for comfort now, and fashion seems to have come to a standstill as a result.

      It does repeat but its simply because the fashion industry has no original concepts so it has to keep recycling but I like it when the hipster look comes back around and women dress retro smile

      I have noticed recently that the 1970s fashion seems to have come full circular, I guess people just prefer the older looks but with a more modern feel smile

        Right, this must be the concept of "spiral rising", i.e. put innovative ideas into old designs. Besides, it is a good way for designers to turn to old times for creation, like Richieb799 said above "no original concepts". And plus, people nowadays seem to be fond of remembering past times in this hurry society. Indeed, all those old memories are memorable and

      The 70’s style is the main driver for the popular accessories this season, from bucket bag, Fedora Bag to Chalaza Oxford shoe. In a word, there are few Studio 54’s dazzling, but more Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche style.
         Although for 2011-2012 fall and winter, designers’ retro feel inspiration comes from different fashion time, 70’s is still key to the influence and to some extent promotes accessory’s developing trend. While modernistic style in the 60’s and elegant mixed style in the 30’s and 40’s provides many fresh ideas. The more remote historical style like Baroque, Rococo and such romantic style add certain fashionable thespian feel elements and luxuriant charm to the accessories.
