The designers celebrate the decade of flower power in the form of newly launched bell bottoms, colorful hippie hats and maxi dresses.
The Maxi Trend is not entirely new. Over the past year, over-long skirts and dresses have always been discovered on the catwalks. But this fashion trend is only very slowly becoming established. Because one question arises with many trends: How do I put it on? Does that fit my figure? Can I wear something like that at all?
