Yesterday I showed my English class, Baz Lurhmann's Romeo and Juliet. As I watched it, memories came flooding back to the summer of 1996, the days I spent creating my bedroom just like Juliet's and the moments I longed for a pair of beautiful wings. So today I thought I'd pay homage to the 90s films that help to shape my love for fashion and design.
1. Romeo and Juliet - Everything about this film still makes me a little giddy, especially the final scene and Juliet's beautiful angel costume.
2. The Craft - Of course, during my short gothic phase, I loved this! I spent days searching for a pair of black knee high socks and suspenders.
3. Clueless - The knee high socks continue, but with time with perfect Twin Sets and Mary Janes. Every time I watch this film, I just smile.
4. Empire Records - To this day, one of my very favourite films.. I attempted (quite unsuccessfully) to emulate Liv Tyler's look for years. Empire Records, changed my world.
I would love to about the films that shaped your teenage fashion years.
I'm also looking forward to sharing my favourite classic film style icons later in the week.
