Fashion within the "cinematic" flow

The invisible bond between “fashion” and “cinema” has existed for decades. These two “fields” continuously go hand in hand and inspire each other. However, no one knows for sure which field was the “pioneer” suggesting the first collaboration.

Mary Janes in a scene from 1995 from “Clueless” Throwback Summer Shoes We Can’t Get Enough Of | Vogue Cher Horowitz character in the movie Clueless A charm coupled with innocence that many can’t imagine.

During the Roaring 20s or even Swinging London, this type of shoe had a mission to lead fashion into a completely new era.

Originally, Mary Janes were a design specifically for children in the early 20th century, distinguished by the “cross-bar” strap over the instep. And when they reappeared on the catwalks of famous names like Dior, Fendi, Sandy Liang, they donned a new look.

This “modernized” version of Mary Janes paired with snug-fitting stockings was conveyed through images of Alice in Wonderland. This trend can be seen on many celebrities from Olivia Rodrigo to Dua Lipa, but they were inspired by Cher Horowitz rather than Alice.

Costume designer Ann Roth was responsible for creating a modern wardrobe with the “main role” assigned to the Maxi belt.

However, they had to go into “hibernation” when they couldn’t compete with other new trends until 2015. Thanks to the promotion and endorsement efforts of the lead actress, they were able to return to the “limelight” through the Grace & Frankie series.
