Some fashion features of this era
So what influenced these features?
Social influences
Music heavily influenced fashion socially. Early 2000s saw Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears styles such as denim dresses, distressed jeans, midriff tops and bright leggings being emulated. The mid-late 2000s saw Eminem have a huge influence with rapper baggy pant, Kanye with his shutter shades and Lady Gaga with her out there style. Popular models also made skinny low rise jeans a must have item . Many celebrities, such as Sienna Miller, brought back inspiration from the 60s with her "boho chic" bohemian style of flowing fabrics in vivid prints or earthy tones, combined with dangly jewellery and a "hobo" fringed handbag. Socialites like Paris Hilton helped give oversized sunglasses a come back too. Other influences came from movies like Duke's of Hazard with daisy duke shorts and cowboy boots. Social media like Myspace also allowed these trends to be more easily and quickly spread.
Economic influences
The 2000s fashion era is often known as the "mash up" era, where previous high end fashion trends were recycled and revamped. This decade didn't actually have it own "style" for the most part. Designers adopted a more colourful, feminine, "anti modern" style by drawing inspiration from vintage and retro clothing (particularly from 60s,70s and 80s eras). The 90s fashion trends also heavily carried over.

Technological Influences
the "mash up" era
September 11 attacks had a major influence on the fashion world. New York Fashion week shows were cancelled despite being mid way through. The fashion industry lost alot of money from this. Six months later, designers made a come back proving business as usual but in a more delicate and gentle way. The global financial crisis recession that occurred in 2007 also meant people were shopping for cheaper deals and seen an influx of replicas copying major brands from the designer catwalk.
Technology heavily influenced the 2000s. By 2000 designers had caught on to adding Lycra or Spandex to fibres like viscose and acetate and created garments with great comfort and better shape retention in wear. In the early 2000s, apparel was made as dark, reflective and as technological as possible. This showed a futuristic approach to fashion, with metallics, shiny blacks, heavy use of gray, straps, and buckles becoming commonplace. The mid 2000s seen a synthetic snake skin and fur commonly used and later 2000s seen distressed denim and "grunge" return. The internet also allowed the introduction of Google, online shopping and social media which drastically influenced this era fashion as buyers became more educated and savvy. When the original iPod was introduced, the earbuds, as well as the gadget itself, became somewhat of an fashion accessory.
Ethical and Eco influences
Identify and research the futuristic fabrics that might of been used in this video from 2005.
Let's PREDICT what might have influenced fashion in the 2000-2010 era by brainstorming to create a mindmap.
More information can be found on the following websites:
Women wore denim miniskirts and jackets, tank tops, flip-flops, skinny jeans and ripped jeans all in a variety of bright colours. Fur coats even made a come back. The men’s fashion in these years was more cool and sporty. Trainers, baseball caps, light-colored polo shirts and boot-cut or hip hop inspired jeans were pretty popular. Business men preferred a more offbeat two-buttoned blazer worn with a matching suit trouser, a slim tie and waistcoat.
In the late 2000s, many stockists began to influence the green fashion movement, as well as did the celebrities. Many items in this era were eco friendly as they were either recycled or made from materials like hemp, wood, shells, glass and seeds. Especially bohemian fashion as this tied in with the values of the trend to be environmentally friendly. In 2007 the first fabric made from grape ferment was shown in Australia to promote discussion about what other fabrics could be used besides silk and cotton. 2007 also saw a resurgence of interest in ethnic fair trade fashion from India, Africa and the Middle East, including harem pants, embroidered kurti, silk sashes, sarongs, gypsy tops, bangles, beaded jewelery and the saree as young women discovered Bollywood cinema and belly dancing, popularized by Shakira. Fake fur and snake skin were introduced rather than the real items seen in previous decades due to the association of real fur and skin with animal cruelty.
Did this fashion represent the happenings of the 2000-2010 era?
Overall, these fashion features clearly represent the music influences of the decade. Britney Spears was labeled the princess of pop music at this time and her outfits clearly influenced the fashion trends discussed. Eminem was also the biggest rapper at the time and this can be clearly seen in the mens fashion. It was definitely a mash up era of previous decades making a come back. As we grew more educated through the introduction of search engines like Google, consumers became more aware of fair trade and eco-friendly fashion. Further, the internet created an opportunity for people to experiment with their style which contributed to the reintroduction of previous trends. Additionally, the fashion became more subtle and not as outrageous after September 11 so I believe the fashion did represent these events in this era. However, the global financial crisis did not seem to have as big of an influence as I would have thought as the fashion world kept on ticking as consumers kept on buying.
