Futurism and sci-fi: futuristic fashion trend
Futurism. It's something of a paradox. The future cannot be predicted; but in envisioning it, we can create self-fulfilling prophecies. You could go crazy just thinking about it - so instead let's just say that the dawn of a new decade has sent 2010's fashion trends into sci-fi and futurism overdrive.
So how do we define futuristic fashion? As a Spring 2010 fashion trend it seems to be less about gadgetry and more about future environments. We're faced with collections that contemplate dystopia or evolutionary change. Topics of science fiction are woven into the threads of some designers' clothing, while others base their designs on more traditional views of futurism.
