Fashion in the 1990s – posted on 19/9/9!

I found links to three fascinating hour long documentaries that look at the creative fashions and fashion industry of the 1990s.

The first film done in 1992 is by Henry Stein and looks at the origins of an avant-garde fashion event called Untamed Fashion Assembly. This was an annual event held in Riga, Latvia, from 1990 to 1999. The creativity exhibited in these shows that bridge the period when the country was breaking away from Soviet control is surprising!

The second film Antifashion was released in 2012, but looks at the fashion rebels of the 1990s including Martin Margiela, Rick Owens, Alexander McQueen, and Ann Demeulemeester…

The last of the three films, from 1995, is called Catwalk which looks at that moment when the supermodels reigned the fashion world:
