The 90s trends are back. What are your memories of this time?
I was a teen during this era of uncertainty for Russia. Hyperinflation and long lines for the currency exchange remain fixed in my memory. Unlike the United States, where grunge was extremely popular, sportswear and neon colors dominated Russian markets. Techno music and electronic rock were enormously popular and influenced fashion trends. La Bouche, Dr. Alban, Prodigy, Ace Of Base and similar bands dominated the scene. Also, I will never forget the sudden flow of electronics into our household, which included a ton of video games. The Internet was not accessible to everyone. Many didn’t even know about it. Yet, thanks to my older brother who is extremely obsessed with technology and science fiction I was discovering things, like email, instant messaging, web sites, etc.
I have to admit, the 90s were a fascinating time for me. There were many new things to discover, particularly in the fields of fashion and technology. I was always sort of an early consumer. I always believe like I have to be one of the firsts when it comes to discovering new things.
Today I personally like to incorporate those cute royal blue blue slouchy pants into my wardrobe and pair them with high heels.
