A lot of fashion is dictated by the materials available.  Who knew, back in 1893 that we'd have things like polyester, lycra, stretch denim, fabric glued-on sparkles.

A lot of fashion is also dictated by historic events.  Who knew, back in 1893 that women would wear pants more than dresses, or that office professionals would have "business casual" wear?

Um, I am pretty certain that the fashion industry can not predict 2 years in advance, let alone 100 years.
LOL

I've been wearing a hoodie, t-shirt, shorts, and socks for 2 decades.  Take that 1890!

"Pointy wizard hats, walking sticks, ruffles and ribbons: What they thought we'd wearing today - as imagined in 1893"

I put on my robe and pointy wizard hat....
 
2014-04-15 06:19:57 AM  
Wow.  Is it 1993 already? Time flies.
 
2014-04-15 06:22:03 AM  
Well the prediction for the 70's wasn't too far off.
 
2014-04-15 06:22:43 AM  
Daily shaving, wrist watches, cigarettes instead of pipes or cigars, donuts and french fries. All side effects of the first world war that dominated normalcy for the next century, mostly because it got reinforced 20 years later.

Isn't anyone gonna call out Lady Gaga for not crediting this guy?

I've had a team working on this over the past few weeks, and what we've come up with can be reduced to two fundamental concepts. One, people are not wearing enough hats. Two, matter is energy. In the Universe there are many energy fields which we cannot normally perceive. Some energies have a spiritual source which act upon a person's soul. However, this soul does not exist ab initio as orthodox Christianity teaches; it has to be brought into existence by a process of guided self-observation. However, this is rarely achieved owing to man's unique ability to be distracted from spiritual matters by everyday trivia.

The Wizard of Oz on the big screen is farking gorgeous. Original print or remastered, if you ever have the opportunity--go see it.


Also, 17 year old Judy Garland.

 What!?! That's amazing, how did they predict a Lady Gaga stage attire like that?

Third one in the top row kinda dresses like Sir Mix-a-lot.

So wear more hats.
Got it.

As for article, any more absurd than what early movies thought the people of today would be wearing??

In 100 years I predict men's suits will look like... Pretty much what we have had for the last 100 years.

Is it wrong that my first thought was "Behold the Potato Croquette Princess"?

Wouldn't hit it. Might dip it in ketchup if I weren't trying to avoid fried foods...

Seriously. Can't go wrong with a classic Bond tux.


Steve Harvey on the other hand...
 
2014-04-15 07:23:33 AM  
I don't see a difference in any of that fashion over the predicted years. It all looks like lolipop guild to me.
 
2014-04-15 07:24:13 AM  
Those culottes say "Let's have lunch, but I'm buying." But also, "I'm CrAzY!"

The fashion world has always been pure, unadulterated, festering tripe which sprang fully-formed from the drug-addled brains of the self-absorbed fashionistas...

In that regard, he hit the nail on the head.

My 4 year old niece does so on a regular basis, so it's not that much of an achievement...
 
2014-04-15 07:38:09 AM  
The reason these would look more appropriate in Oz was probably that the original artist for Oz was using those drawings for inspiration...

That will be the case, but you'll slowly see the suit take the place of the tuxedo as formal attire as the tuxedo/black tie  becomes very formal wear and the white tie and tails goes the way of powdered wigs, stockings and buckled shoes.
 
2014-04-15 07:53:00 AM  
Ladies and gentlemen, we screwed up. Someone start bringing these fashions into the fold!

Togas. Once any civilization becomes sufficiently advanced, it's always togas.

Was it me or did it seem like the further along he got in time, the more accurate the portrayals became.  I mean, he was still off by quite a bit, but by the 1993 version he kinda hit the nail on the head but with more extravagance.  If that trend continued he might have got a perfect hit by 2100 or so.

Indeed.  I'd be all over that monstrous, unkempt crotch forest.

Maybe.

But it'll be long gone from everyday wear.  You may still see lawyers wearing it in court, looking as antiquated as the silly Brits and their wigs today.  And you might see it at some extremely formal social occasions.  But outside of those, you'll never see it.
