Fashion Flashback: A Decade of White Fashion

Reading Time: 2 minutes

White is the most basic color. It’s clean, elegant, fresh, and sophisticated all at the same time. As part of FashionTV’s 15th anniversary, we are happy to share with you some of the most memorable white moments on the catwalk.

White Apocalypse 2000

At the beginning of 21st century, many thought the end of the world was just around the corner, designers included. So, for their 2000 collections, many went for apocalyptic white designs. The strict cuts, shapely figures, and simple lines were all symbolic of a return to the core of nature. Simplicity in white was the message on nearly all catwalks.

Sexy and Sweet White 2003

White is an extremely versatile hue, it can be ultra sexy or simply sweet. In 2003, designers decided to give the color many different interpretations. While many designers used white to represent sexiness (a’la Marilyn Monroe), many others used the color with more virginal themes.

The result of the diverse representations:a mixture of dresses, suits, beachwear, skirts, pants, and a world of accessories all in white. After watching this clip, you may ask yourselves, “why do we need any other color?”

White Fever 2009

Whether it was in Milan, New York, or Paris, 2009 was the year of white. Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Lagerfeld, and Dsquared2 were just a few of the many top brands that chose white as the center-point of their collections.

Runways across the globe during Fashion Week were filled with an array of looks all in white, bringing a fresh and vivid spirit to the catwalks.

White 2009

Although blues, reds, greens, purples, and pinks can add a lot to runways, designers throughout the past decade seem to agree: there is something magical to a completely white ensemble.

Fashiontv had the pleasure of being at the front row during these sensational shows, and will continue to bring you the best of fashion in the future.
