2000: Sex and the City
In the beginning of the 2000s, women’s fashion was greatly influenced by HBO’s hit show Sex and the City, featuring Carrie Bradshaw, a New York born and raised fashionista, who breathes and lives fashion. Unlike the seventies with the disco fashion or the fifties with the New Look, there wasn’t really one look that defined the year 2000 or the decade to come.
As reflected in Sex and the City, women’s fashion was about women empowerment – wearing whatever they want, whenever they want, without confining and restricting rules. Some fashion trends inspired by Sex and the City were stiletto heels, desginer handbags, berets and overall big brand names, such as Manolo Blahnik shoes.
