on Wednesday,November 03,2010 17:11


This week, Women's Wear Daily (WWD) celebrated its centennial by publishing a list of the 100 most memorable moments in the fashion industry, noting designers who have excelled in the field, according to CBS News.

Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow, Jackie Kennedy and Madonna were among the fashion icons recognized by WWD. The flapper style that came and went with the 1920s, along with the introduction of hair dye were noted on the list as well.

Fashion fragrances were also mentioned by WWD, beginning with the development of perfumes and colognes by celebrities. Elizabeth Taylor and Gwen Stefani were honorable mentions.

WWD made a point to list negative events to give readers a better perspective on how the industry has changed and evolved into what it is today. The journal recognized the loss of french silks and Moroccan cotton that were aboard the Titanic and how it affected the designers around the world.

The full list can be found on the WWD website. Fashion designer jobs are only predicted to grow by 1 percent over the next eight years, but wholesale retailers are expected to see a rise in success.
