At Dash in Fashion, I travel around the globe to discover the best in kids clothing design from babies, kids, and teens. Each season children’s fashion designers launch their unique collection that shares a common theme for the season, be it specific fabrics, colors or mini-me style inspired by women or men’s fashion week.
With a duty to work, volunteer or manage a household by oneself, women needed a handbag that carried more than the small 1930s clutches. Day bags were inspired my military service messenger bags with long shoulder straps that were carried over the shoulder or across the body when riding a bike. For something prettier, a large (at least 12 inches) flat envelope purse in plain black or brown leather or plastic held a woman’s growing collection of beauty products. The ruched or scallop treatment on bags is an iconic style of this decade.
It was in this atmosphere that the 1968 White House fashion show was born. Its host, Lady Bird Johnson, was successor to the fashion-forward Jackie Kennedy—whose iconic style had revolutionized the way first lady fashion was covered by the press. Though Johnson considered fashion “froufrou” and despaired of competing with the famously chic Kennedy, she learned that keeping up with fashion was an effective way of ensuring the media focused on things she considered more important, rather than fretting about her dowdy wardrobe in print. She even made the International Best Dressed List in 1966. But she also knew that her fashion choices carried enormous political power. “Fashion starts at the White House,” observed Nina Hyde, the fashion editor of the Washington Daily News and one of the organizers of the show. “Front-page news makes front-page fashion. If a woman is going to be in the public eye, other women are influenced by what she wears.”
Description Blazers with crests and matching slacks with contrasting vests were great for boys going out for a formal time in 1965. Turtleneck pullovers, plaid button-downs, striped cardigans and plain-front trousers were perfect for casual outings.

The four major current fashion capitals are acknowledged to be Paris, Milan, New York City, and London, which are all headquarters to the greatest fashion companies and are renowned for their major influence on global fashion. Fashion weeks are held in these cities, where designers exhibit their new clothing collections to audiences. A succession of major designers such as Coco Chanel and Yves Saint-Laurent have kept Paris as the center most watched by the rest of the world, although haute couture is now subsidized by the sale of ready-to-wear collections and perfume using the same branding.
With the start of the war and a strict rationing on fabric, dresses in the 1940s became shorter. Whereas the 1930s featured dresses down to mid calf, the 1940s brought them up to knee length. The war also affected the top of the dress.
Consider it this way: In 2014, Rihanna accepted the Fashion Icon Award the Council of Fashion Designers of America in a sheer rhinestone-spangled scrim of a dress by Adam Selman; last November, she accepted the Shoe of the Year award at the Footwear News Achievement Awards in a long black Vetements X Juicy Couture velvet skirt, a long-sleeved shirt draped at the waist and long gloves, with almost no skin showing at all. In 2015, Beyoncé channeled Venus on the half shell in sheer Givenchy at the Met Gala, with only bits of strategically placed floral embroidery to keep her from arrest; this year, the Met Gala celebrates a designer — Rei Kawakubo — whose last show encased the female body in oversize armless carapaces that swallowed the Betty Boop and Botero silhouettes whole.
Perhaps no one said it better than Oscar Wilde when he uttered the phrase, “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” We actually have shows on television that glamorize adorable toddler girls being dragged from pageant to pageant so they can live out their parents’ unfulfilled dreams of stardom and beauty. No toddler should care that much about a tiara unless it adorns the head of her favorite stuffed animal at a living room tea party. Any parent who turns innocent fun into some sort of militant Barbie dress-up competition should be ashamed.
The industry buzzword for this mashup of formal and athletic wear is athleisure. “Take something like sneakers,” Kalenderian says. “It’s astounding how many people in different industries find themselves dressing in sneakers instead of leather shoes. It’s become natural to stretch the rules of what we think of as the traditional male suit of armor. I think that freedom to try new things comes from sport.” Most creative-class employers have loosened their dress codes, and while an outfit of Nike Westbrooks and cashmere drop-crotch sweats may not yet fly at Goldman Sachs, even bankers have occasion to loosen up. “Maybe the Goldman guy is wearing that on Saturday or Sunday,” Kalenderian posits.
In the seven years of their label’s existence, the boys (Shimon and Ariel Ovadia) from Brooklyn have become hometown heroes and a favorite of athletes and the hip-hop set with collections that find a happy medium between streetwear cool and preppy. July 12, 8 p.m.

From an ethical standpoint, “Made in America” is not always an appropriate yardstick; there are sweatshops here, too, and much European-made clothing meets the same standards in terms of labor conditions, environmental impact and quality. But from an economic and political one, it’s an important bellwether. Fashion may not start at the White House anymore as it did in Jackie’s day, but it’s still affected by decisions made there.
On the flip-side, but still just as punchy, you’ll find mix ‘n’ match ultra-pastels being adopted everywhere from New York to London and back again. Hippest when worn together in the weirdest combos possible: See Céline for the lemon, lilac, purple and beige formula we’d like to copy.
After they moved away for college and careers — Ms. Anglin to Chicago, her sister to New York — they would save up their money and wait to shop until they were back in Mississippi, searching out the designers they’d discovered up North.
And yet, many fashion insiders have never heard of the place. Its founders, Bill and Melody Cohen, who run the business with their former daughter-in-law, Stephanie Cohen, are savvy if eccentric businesspeople, who for 37 years have operated what the shopping website Racked called the “best-kept secret” in fashion. They locate their stores in secondary markets in the South, in small cities like Hattiesburg, Miss., and Slidell, La., where one doesn’t expect to find, say, a $10,000 crystal-embroidered Dolce & Gabbana bustier dress for sale next to a pool hall with $2 bottles of Michelob Ultra.
Teddy coats are a particular style of faux fur coat that we predict you’ll see everywhere in 2018. Think of them as coats made with teddy bear fur. They’ve got the warmth, style and texture of faux fur, but with an extra kick of coziness.

For example, a woman who is pregnant could be looking for diapers, baby strollers, and maternity clothes. Her needs would differ greatly from a woman with children that just went off to college or a teen entering high school.
I don’t believe children’s fashion is an important part of life. Of all the things we want our kids to enjoy, looking cool shouldn’t be one of them. Parents can be vain and we often see our children as a reflection of ourselves — from behavior to grades to fashion, the moms and dads at the park are silently judging each other based on their kids. But there is a lesson we should have learned before becoming parents: “Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

Socks were popular with working women and teenagers. Bobby socks with saddle shoes are an icon of the 1950s but were really started in the 1940s. During the war, women wore patriotic colored socks instead of nylons, even with heels.

During the mid 60s, Mod girls wore very very short miniskirts, tall, brightly colored go-go boots, monochromatic geometric print patterns such as houndstooth, and tight fitted, sleeveless tunics. Flared trousers and bell bottoms appeared in 1964 as an alternative to capri pants, and led the way to the hippie period introduced in the 1960s. Bell bottoms were usually worn with chiffon blouses, polo-necked ribbed sweaters or tops that bared the midriff. These were made in a variety of materials including heavy denims, silks, and even elasticated fabrics. Variations of polyester were worn along with acrylics. A popular look for females was the suede mini-skirt worn with a French polo-neck top, square-toed boots, and Newsboy cap or beret. This style was also popular in the early 2000s.

Call it a backlash to this year’s omnipresent off-the-shoulder looks, or just a calmer continuation of the 1980s trend we charted above, but BIG, BIG, BIG shoulders and sleeves are everywhere for spring. Most commonly rendered in soft blouses and shirts so that you can easily counterbalance the dramatic proportions with a miniskirt, like at Isabel Marant, or feel just fine ‘n’ breezy wearing a billowing outfit head-to-toe.
“Right now,” he says, “I’m taking steps to get there. It’s a learning process. You have to be committed to going out to meet different people, having your ears open, not thinking you know everything about fashion. The creative stuff, I think, comes from within.”
