The future of fashion relates to three things, its past, its present, and of course, its future. It is only when these three times are taken into consideration, a perfect prediction for the future can be made. There are immense possibilities that also need to be taken into account.
However, even after considering all these things, predictions of fashion, especially women’s fashion, may not always be as realistic as expected. This is because there is a fair amount of the element of uncertainty in it, whether it is in these modern days or as it was in the past.
As predicted by Cromwell Q. Snyder in an article written in 1893, which looks into fashion for 100 years, the logic behind such predictions for each decade does not seem far-fetched. It streamlines the projections of the 20th century.
As for women fashion, it seems to have been controlled by similar waves and rules as men’s fashion, of course, in a different degree and the ‘freedom of expression’ factor. It is this difference that makes predicting and creating a fashion envelope so tricky.
Future as it is seen now
If you look into the future of fashion based on the present times, you will see that it is going through a paradigm shift, and the path ahead is mostly based on the current context.
There is a close bond between fashion and tech now, which has led to different things, such as:
This is something that is happening across all industries wherein everyone seems to be more focused on emotion-based marketing and relies heavily on providing a much better user experience both in personalization and in design.
However, the real thing here is the context, which is typically based on the next frontier of technology. This includes:
AI comes with its own set of complexities, and that not only involves creating a workable AI but also intertwining it with the products that exist already as well as the fabric of everyday life.
This brings to one conclusion. Till the time the industry gets there, fashion is all about you, and you are the fashion and its future.
The future starting 2020
Industry experts and others in fashion business like Babeappeal.com predict women’s fashion starting in 2020 for the next decade. They primarily focus on one specific thing: how women fashion clothing and accessories will be in the future to keep up with the change and looking forward. They suggest that:
Experts in tech and fashion say that people will soon be able to design and print their jewelry, accessories, fabrics, and clothes as well. They also suggest that heels will no more feel like heels in the future! The market will also be flooded with color-changing clothes, self-cleaning textiles, and lots of other innovative things that will even blur the gender lines with more androgynous looks.
The future of fashion clothing
The future of fashion clothing depends on two specific things: women and cultural elements. All these are the result of the inevitable social change, which shows different things as follows:
All these indicate that social change has been dramatic to make the women dress up and not dress down, especially outside their work.
Role of the designers
Just as women define and determine the future of fashion, the role of the fashion designers is also equally important to shape up the future of women’s fashion accordingly. They must meet the demands of the women as well as that of the market to ensure success.
Ideally, it is only those designers who lead by example and not follow the herd will be able to ensure this and make bold moves to keep up with the upheavals. They must design items according to the culture of the person. This will help the wearer in many ways, such as:
In short, the designers themselves must be the rule-breakers because it is the freedom from conventional fashion rules that will shape up the future of fashion.
The fashion of the future
Looking at and predicting the future of fashion will not be possible if you do not look at the fashion of the future, and it is not only about wearable technology. That was in 2014. What about fashion predictions for 2050? Experts say that there will be:
Therefore, future technology will mirror back buyers’ choices within different brands making this more adaptable and far easier to connect.
