In the early 1990s, with the economic crisis, the first Gulf War and the devastation caused by AIDS, fashion reflected the times. It was sombre, desperate and sometimes violent. Clothing underwent deconstruction and recycling, and fashion shows became fashion performances.
Fashion would never be the same again. The ambition of this series is to show how history, politics, and culture influenced fashion, and how in turn fashion influenced society and evoked cultural trends and movements worldwide.
Using an event which will mark the decade to come as a starting point, each episode revolves around four of the period's most emblematic designers, mixing small details and spicy anecdotes with the big picture to recount a decade of fashion but also culture, politics and social life.
Packed with exclusive interviews with the key players of the period (designers, collaborators, muses and models, journalists, fashion editors, writers, CEOs) and never before-seen footage, this series offers a many-layered and well-documented interpretation of the last thirty years of fashion.
A riveting tale of interwoven destinies, recreating the feeling of an era, pulsating the energy of an epic novel.
A tale of creativity, money, egos, successes... and falls.
