Eight Fashion Innovations That Changed The Way We Dress

Leaps and bounds in either technology or popular thinking that changed the way we dress—for the better.

By doing so, the heel could be much narrower than when it was made of wood alone, and hence the pencil-thin stiletto was born.

This sponsored post was created in conjunction with Mazda's Game Changers series, which highlights innovators-in-the-making. One of our favorites? Leanne Mai-Ly Hilgart's vegan outerwear line, Vaute Couture, which—similar to the TrueFit size-matching program—perfectly marries style and technology. Leanne has big plans for the future of fashion, and we think she'll be sure to shake things up. Learn more about Leanne and Vaute Couture in the video below.
