• Short Summary

    Fab story predicts what women and one unfortunate man will be wearing in the year 2000.

  • Description

    Titles read: "EVE, AD 2000!"

    United States of America.

    Great story shows what the fashion designers of America predict women will be wearing in the year 2000 AD. Futuristic fashions 1939 style include a dress that can be adapted for day or evening wear, complete with sun-visor (and African-American maid), and a dress made of transparent net with a towering 60s-style hairdo (wouldn't look out of place on a millennium catwalk). The next two outfits are pretty transparent too; then a bridal gown with a cellophane veil and another adaptable dress.

    The suit for the man of 2000 looks like a boiler suit with wide chain mail over the top. A circular aerial is worn on the head, to pick up signals for his mobile phone and radio. He also has two natty silver boxes attached to his belt "for coins, keys and candy for cuties". The beard is marcel-waved and he has buns of hair at the side of his head. Not a particularly manly look!
