Indie Fashion And The Women Who Defined The 1990s
Take a trip down memory lane as we go through the archives can celebrate the best indie looks that defined the 1990s...
You know what they say: if you didn’t snag your tights and throw on a laced nightgown in the 1990s you really weren’t there. Oversized plaid shirts, babydoll dresses, lingerie as outerwear, parkas and the union jackon everything –the ’90s really was the decade that shook up the fashion and music world and put Swinging London back on the map again.
It was also the decade that saw grunge do battle with Britpop, Blur squabble with Oasis and riot grrrls step over the carnage to reignite feminism for a new generation. Which is what we’re celebrating today: the strong women who struck it out on their own and paved the way for feminism today. Why? Their wardrobe was always a major part of their empowering message.
From supermodel Kate Moss, to riotous musicians Courtney Love, Bjork, PJ Harvey and Kathleen Hanna, iconic teen television (My So-Called Life, anyone?) and effortlessly cool movie stars (Chloë Sevigny, Drew Barrymore). We’re all set to rewind that VHS and take a trip down memory lane as we go through the archives to celebrate the best indie looks from the iconic women who defined the 1990s…
And who better to start with than one of the most definitive icons of the decade? Croydon’s very own…
London’s Hilton Hotel was the setting for a dress that would come to define the 1990s. The occasion was the Elite Model Agency’s ‘Look of the Year’ contest in 1993. At this moment, 19-year-old Kate effortlessly trumped everyone there with the look of the decade. This etheral, mermaid-like metallic creation by Liza Bruce made the slip dress the outfiteverywoman wanted to try but very few would be able to pull off.
