"Challenger exploded with seven astronauts on board. The New York Mets won the World Series, and it was "people power" in the Philippines. Power dressing ruled: aggressive suits & bulky shoulder pads reflected women's success in the workplace. TV shows like Dynasty and Dallas had everyone dressing the part. Nostalgia for the 60s ran rampant. Notable runways of 1986: Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Dior, Chanel, Gianfranco Ferre, Laura Biagiotti, Gianni Versace, Moschino, Betty Jackson, John Galliano, Katharine Hamnett, Betsey Johnson, Marc Jacobs, and Donna Karan."--Publisher website.
