Tie Dye’s Reign of Top trends
Fashion is ever growing and always changing and evolving.
Tie Dye is something that has never gone out of style its only now that the younger generation is picking up on it and incorporating it into today’s fashion.
It officially made its comeback at PFW where it was in various collection from the likes of Stella McCartney, Prada and more.

Tie dye was originally created by the Japanese and Indonesians and was quite a huge trend in the 60s and across the world worn by hippies as during that time they were associated with people who rebelled against the norms of society.
In the 70s men wore it as a continuation of Hippie fashion.
By the 1990s everyone knew about tie dye and it was quite a mainstream fashion style and was even sold in retail stores very differently to 30 years prior.
The way it has been incorporated into fashion in 2019, is about being relaxed and being an individual which is fairly similar to how it was in the past but also very different.
“This way of designing and dressing allowed complete individuality which can sometimes be lacking in fashion these days,” said Kavita Kumari, a specialist print and dye technician at London College of Fashion.
Having something that has been so controversial in the past and have it be completely reinvented to fit the fashion world today is interesting to see how it can be interpreted.
“The current awareness around buzz words like ‘fast-fashion’ and sustainability is probably partly responsible for the regeneration of tie-dye in fashion today,” said Kumari.
Fashion experts agree that its something that’s to be styled with light jeans or just jeans, is how it should be worn today.
Here are a few celebs wearing tie dye recently
Justin Bieber’s Merch brand drew house has incorporated the style of tie dye along with super model Gigi Hadid and also Ariana Grande showcasing an oversized tie dye jumper and knee high boots.
Victoria’s secret being pulled from TV
The end of an Era for the fashion world
For the fans of Victoria’s Secret and its angels many are getting over the leave of Adriana Lima and to add to that we’re told the show will not be airing for its annual fashion show near to the end of the year
it was made public that the Brand CEO Leslie Wexner broadcast-ed an email explaining that TV was no longer the right fit for the brand anymore nor for the digital age which we are now in
Many viewers know that last year wasn’t their best year number wise as it ranked as their worst show since it aired almost two decades ago
The fashion industry is one of the fastest changing industries that their is, there will always be new trends and most people picked up on that too
The producers still have the mindset that the weight of all the models have to be round about the same when we’re all more or less evolving and there are women of ALL different body shapes and colors
Earlier this year Victoria’s Secret had added a few more angels to their list and they were supposed to be seen as the diverse team compared to ones they’ve cast’d in the past.
The show has come under scrutiny on many occasions but last year chief brand officer Ed Razek told Vogue that they wouldn’t include transgender females in the show ans after backlash he cleared it up in a statement
“My remark regarding the inclusion of transgender models in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came across as insensitive. I apologize. To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model in our show. We’ve had transgender models come to castings…And like many others, they didn’t make it. It was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are.”
The Company Memo Explained that their may be another event to host now instead of the show and it may be on some type of streaming platform like Netflix or hulu just because we’re in the streaming ages at this moment in time
