Moose’s “Encounters” thread which bemoaned the lack of music progression in the last couple of decades reminded me of an incident a couple of weeks ago when my 17yr old daughter told me she had been invited to a party with a 2000’s theme and asked for dress-up advice. Honestly I was stumped. A 1940’s, 1950’s, 1960’s 1970’s and 1980’s themed party would suggest some obvious iconic and cliche fashions …. from wartime – “Rosie the Riveter”, through Teds, hippies, tartan and flares, punk, new romantics and baggy – but what was iconic about the 2000’s or the late 90’s for that matter. Is it just that things are moving too quickly? Is it still too close (although I did 60’s parties in the 70’s for sure). Any ideas?
