I have returned to my fashion roots and am blogging for trend forcasting firm MintModa . I am reporting on the historical roots of the latest fashion trends and have recently written about Demna Gvesalia's revival of the Mother Hubbard dress ("One of the latest and most surprising fashion trends has hit 57th and 5th: a window at Bergdorf Goodman features a dress from the house of Balenciaga that many people would otherwise recognize from the 1970s television show “Little House on the Prairie.”  Despite its humble origins, the prairie dress--also known originally as the “Mother Hubbard” dress--is the latest in Paris chic, and this is not the first time the modest style has been the new thing in the world’s capitals of fashion"). Another recent post explores the potential influence of the upcoming exhibition of late 19th century symbolist art coming in June 2017 to the Guggenheim Museum ("The Symbolists had strong ideas of women and their appearance. This was the era of the Femme Fatale and the Symbolist woman was as fatale as it gets. Symbolist style was the heroin chic of the fin-de siècle. Some of the themes that obsessed the Symbolist painters show up in what can correctly be called the “alternative” fashions of the turn-of-the-century").
