Futuristic fashions: Eve, A.D. 2000!

"Futuristic fashions 1939 style include a dress that can be adapted for day or evening wear, complete with sun–visor (and African–American maid), and a dress made of transparent net with a towering 60s–style hairdo (wouldn't look out of place on a millennium catwalk). The next two outfits are pretty transparent too; then a bridal gown with a cellophane veil and another adaptable dress.

The suit for the man of 2000 looks like a boiler suit with wide chain mail over the top. A circular aerial is worn on the head, to pick up signals for his mobile phone and radio. He also has two natty silver boxes attached to his belt 'for coins, keys and candy for cuties'. The beard is marcel–waved and he has buns of hair at the side of his head. Not a particularly manly look!"

(British Pathé)

Authentic Period Garments Versus Fancy Dress Costumes

[British costume and set designer Jenny Tiramani describes the benefits of being able to examine surviving examples of early 17th century historical dress on display at London''s V&A Museum. She believes that doing so offers designers the opportunity to discover the real weight and look of authentic garments. That designs based on such garments allow actors to perform more authentically and purposefully. Something that isn''t fully possible using lesser approximations – that she describes pejoratively as '' fancy dress'' costumes.]
