Trend Breakdown: The 1970s
A trend may come and go within a season, but there are some trends that endure. The trend of modern 1970s first appeared a couple of seasons ago and has stuck around, filtering down from fashion houses to the high street and influencing more and more collections.
The 1970s is an iconic decade, with music and fashion from its time easily identifiable. The 70s brought us epic moments in fashion; the iconic wrap dress from Diane Von Furstenberg, Karl Lagerfeld at Chloe where he created a collection that continues to give the fashion house direction and vision today, and Vivienne Westwood’s store on Kings Road.
There was plenty of IT girls too, providing us with plenty of inspiration for how to wear the trend in the 21st century. Bianca Jagger, Diana Ross, Farrah Fawcett, Stevie Nicks, Jane Birkin, Goldie Hawn… The list of seventies icons is endless.
