Mode.com made a 2:39 minute time lapsed video that shows some quick clothing and make-up changes on a regular size model. Each change jumps ahead to a new look ten years down the road; beginning in 1915 and ending in 2015.
Just for balance they also did one for men so I thought I would include that one too. The men’s is 2:56 minutes and spans the same time period. It’s nice to watch both to get perspective.
I love short videos like this that give us a huge span of visual information in a short amount of time. It’s funny how the models go from deadpan to playful too.
Just because a style ended during a specific period does not mean you cannot draw things you love from them and use them today. What were some of your favorite time periods? Did you spot any styles that are still hot now?
