    How do they start? Is it just one random guy that decides to try something new, and people just follow suit? For example, a big thing here is wearing socks with Adidas or Nike sandals. Basically like [url]www.kickette.com/images/uploads/79755_David_Beckham_signs_some_autographs_in_HawaiiCU_200208_1_122_356lo_thumb.jpg'>Link. I used to do it when I had morning classes and was too lazy to put on shoes. Another big thing here is basketball shorts + black high socks. Like halfway up your calves, and always with sneakers.

    And it might sound funny, but I would buy a O-Z just to get you in my bedroom.

    Yes usually it's one random guy or a girl but they have to be famous..
    And pray when I'm dead and my ages shall roll
    That my body would blacken and turn into coal
    Then I'll look from the door of my heavenly home and pity the miner that mines my poor bones

    Yes usually it's one random guy or a girl but they have to be famous..

    I think you're dead on with the famous part.

    Before mass media, fashion changed slowly and in little pieces.

    Like you could wear 1750s clothing in 1800 and just omit the wig and you'd still be fashionable.

    Whereas in the modern day if you wear a suit with a cut from the last decade, you instantly identify yourself as either old or lacking fashion sense or both.

    In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet and say to us, 'Make us your slaves, but feed us.'

    Mass media helping fashion trends spread doesn't necessarily mean that famous people are the ones spreading fashion. Any old random Joe could start a new trend if his picture got passed around enough nowadays. In the 1750s, on the other hand, pictures, videos and such weren't available and thus fashion trends took longer to spread because it was by the slow word of mouth.

    Mass media is unconcerned with Joe Random and his forward thinking use of old soda bottles as hats. And I don't think social media would treat such a thing as anything more than an amusing meme photo. If Peggy Debutant made a hat out of an old soda bottle, that would be newsworthy.
