The 1990s Episode 9: NYC - The Rise of Downtown
By the mid 90’s, New York City had married the European couturier model with the commercial power of Seventh Avenue, and had begun to overshadow Paris and Milan as the most important fashion capital in the world. Around the same time, a downtown school of designers and cultural figures began to react against the corporatized, uptown school, establishing a second, and equally as powerful vein of American fashion that exists even today.
