Futuristic fashion, as predicted

posted by Ainsley Drew   Oct 06, 2009

A video clip of what fashion designers in the 1930s predicted that people would be wearing in the year 2000. While the predictions for the women only accurately depict Lady GaGa’s wardrobe, the designers of the past were slightly closer to the mark when it came to men’s fashion:

“He’ll be fitted with a radio, telephone, and containers for coins, keys, and candy for cuties.”

By which they must have meant credit cards.

Update: FASHION magazine responded to this video. It turns out that it was eerily accurate, with designs like Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs parading futuristic wares that are perfectly current.
