            Futurism began in Italy as a cutting-edge theory among 20th century
            painters and sculptors, and evolved in a cultural movement that swept
            through other forms, including fashion design.
            The Futurists called for a break with the past, and a celebration of
            everything new,urban and industrial.


        
             For fashion, Futurism meant fabrics, designs, colours and cuts that
             reflected audacity, movement and speed.
             Futurism faded with the onset of World War 11, but the movement's 
             emphasis was on revolt, risk and modernity continues to inspire
             fashion today





          Futurism's fashion goals challenged artists to develop new styles 
          that expressed the ideas and sensations of the modern world and
          redefined the purpose of fashion.
          In 1914 painter Giacoma Balla one of the movements founders developed
          guidelines for fashion, he mocked the neutral colors, symmetrical designs
          and uniformity that dominated the styles of the day.
          He insisted that clothing should be aggressive with 'muscular' deep shades
          of color and bold geometrical patterns rather than balance.
          AS THE IDEA OF THE FUTURE EVOLVED, SO DID FUTURISM'S ROLE IN FASHION
