21st Century 80s

Using the Web as tool to easily bring back trends from the past

Implications - They say history repeats itself and nowhere is this more evident than in the fashion industry, which is experiencing a 1980s revival. Interestingly, the revival is being fueled by children of the 80s and not those who lived their heyday in the decade. Thanks to the Internet and free media sharing, seeking inspiration from the past has never been easier.
