Teenage Fashions: 1980s

The concept of teenage fashion by the 1990s was so accepted, so everyday, that journalists no longer seemed to comment on it. However, department stores had dedicated sections catering for these clients, for example, “Myers Miss Store”( which started in the late 1960s), although there were cross-overs with children’s wear.
