Implications - Due to the recent recession, budget-tight consumers were shopping in more affordable thrift and vintage stores. This led to a resurgence of vintage fashions; retro clothing and hair allows customers to flaunt their individuality. Companies should embrace this return to retro and look into the past for design inspirations.
