For some, the 80s were a great time. The creation of MTV revolutionized fashion, the music industry and even how we watched TV. For others, it was nothing but bad hair, worse clothing and music that often had more to do with machines than talent.  We take the former approach and relish the excess and outrageous fashions that the 80s managed to make mainstream.  We didn’t accessorize – we “excessorized” and LOVED it.The clothes worn in the 80s depicted people who were trying to find themselves They looked for ways to express their creativity and individuality. Men wore heavy make up and grew long hair. Women wore short hair and layers of clothing. Both sexes were looking for an identity.  1980s clothing styles are back on the shelves now, and we take a look at what makes these eighties fashions for women endure the test of time.

I love this intro on the site it sums up the 80’s era really well, and helped me realise while I’m drawn to that era of fashion. I love this era because its when ‘MTV revolutionized fashion, the music industry and even how we watched TV’, ‘Its the time when the clothes depicted the people who were trying to find themselves … to express their creativity and individuality’, I’m not living in the 80’s but that rings a bell…. I’m trying to find myself as a designer, as a woman, as ME and I love the bursts of colour style and creativity of the 80’s era.
