“I grew up in the eighties. The most impactful aspect was pop music! We wore it all—the acid washed denims, and Cyndi Lauper
Ashish Soni, Fashion Designer
“Olivia Newton John in Grease was definitely a big fashion icon for girls in the ’80s!”

“The ’80s were all about big hair, shoulder pads, leg warmers, loose tops and oversized earrings. Kylie Minogue’s tiered skirt in Locomotion was a huge hit!”
