Designers from the 1930s predict trends for the Year 2000

We don’t often feature fashion on this blog, but this was too funny to pass up. In this film clip from Pathetone Weekly, which featured news erring on the side of the "novel, the amusing and the strange”, fashion designers from the 1930s were asked to predict what clothing would look like in Year 2000. Among the future pickings are some crazy hair styles, an electric headlight, the prospect of skirts disappearing forever and an electric belt that can be adapted to suit the climate.
