“Women who once bought strapless dresses with a little skirt are now buying evening gowns with sleeves and high necks,” said Claire Distenfeld, the owner of Fivestory, the destination boutique on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. “Four seasons ago we couldn’t sell a blouse, and now everyone wants a blouse. Young women who used to come in and buy Balmain’s nonexistent dresses are leaving with knee-length skirts with a sweater or blouse by Emilia Wickstead.”

Designers conduct research on fashion trends and interpret them for their audience. Their specific designs are used by manufacturers. This is the essence of a designer’s role; however, there is variation within this that is determined by the buying and merchandising approach, and product quality; for example, budget retailers will use inexpensive fabrics to interpret trends, but high-end retailers will ensure that the best available fabrics are used.

In the USSR during the mid to late 1960s, Mods and Hippies were nicknamed Hairies for their mop top hair. As with the earlier Stilyagi in the 1950s, young Russian men who dressed this way were ridiculed in the media, and sometimes forced to get their hair cut in police stations.
An animal keeper, Brian Price, crouches on the other side of the mesh. “There you go, Moki,” he murmurs, passing a green bean into Mokolo’s mouth as a treat. The 400-pound animal gently accepts it with his lips.

Finally the suit jacket topped the outfit. Jackets were of the same materiel as the skirt but could be mismatched if that’s all you had. They had the same padded, wide shoulder, high neckline, and nipped in waist with only a slight flair at the bottom. The lower edge of the jacket came to mid hip length. Jackets were button down and featured a variety of lapel width, points and shapes. It wasn’t necessary to wear a blouse under a suit jacket but was often more comfortable. The bolero jacket was a nice, short, rounded edge jacket that was worn over a blouse. They rarely buttoned in front– preferring to hang open and show off the blouse. Sleeves were always long and narrow.

It’s a look which Estelle Lee sees as part of a backlash against the cult of the celebrity mini-me. “Designers like Elfie or Rachel Riley are paying homage to a childhood from yesteryear. Enid Blyton would be delighted with Caramel Baby & Child’s schoolgirl knitwear or La Coqueta’s Peter Pan collars. With increasingly complex lives, the middle classes are trying to fetishise the childhoods of their youth with mary janes, long socks and smocking.” This might explain why Prince George shifts so many products – his pantaloons might charm people as much as his pedigree.

This Milanese moment was three weeks into a month-long catwalk circuit, and it neatly tied up a few notions we’d been jotting down: Colour is key (whether bold or pastel), the ’80s won’t quit, and if you’re going to do power dressing in our current times, you don’t have to be all shoulders and the option is most definitely there.
Perhaps it’s not so much nostalgia as an attempt to halt time, to preserve our children’s childhood in an aspic of handstitched jumpers and T-bar shoes. In the UK in 2015 every child is royal, dressed just so and perched atop a throne concocted from its parents’ golden aspirations. “Here is the receptor of our dreams,” we cry in a manner that would make our ancestors weep for not having lived in an era when all anyone has to worry about is the provenance of their offspring’s PJs.
Fashion in the Soviet Union largely followed general trends of the Western world. However, the state’s socialist ideology consistently moderated and influenced these trends. In addition, shortages of consumer goods meant that the general public did not have ready access to pre-made fashion.
Sarah Coonan, head of buying for beauty, home and children’s at luxury department store Liberty London, notes that Prince George’s championing of simple, quintessentially childlike styles has sparked a wider movement across the entire industry, bolstering independent, established brands and the high street rather than high fashion. “I think there is a shifting aesthetic towards something more traditional”, she says. “Prince George has definitely been a factor in this changing aesthetic, particularly in the growth we’ve seen in terms of classic brands”.
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.”
