Quotations: “As the final decade of the millennium dawned, there would be no greater expression of the cultural, economic, and social revolutions to come than fashion. What rock ‘n’ roll was to the ’50s, drugs to the ’60s, film to the ’70s, and modern art to the ’80s, fashion was to the ’90s: the fuse, then the filter.”
