mode video takes us on a trip down high style’s memory lane, condensing ‘100 years of fashion in under 2 minutes’. the short film spans from 1915 to today, highlighting top trends through a constant transition of outfits, hairdos, makeup pallets and accessories.


as a model stands in place, a team dresses her from head to toe in everything from ‘jazz age sass’ to ‘coco chanel-inspired chic’, the video describes. major shifts can be seen in favorable fads and sought-after looks of the time — small hats and elegantly-styled hair were in vogue between the 1920s and 50s; beginning in the 1980s, big hair became a big trend, and a more casual overall appearance populated the fashion scene. take a look at the video below to see 100 years of couture compressed into a 2-miniute long flick.
