This morning my students were were synthesizing and presenting about information from a professional fashion trend report. And the topic of aesthetic came up, as a “goth revival aesthetic” for childrenswear.

Being of a certain age and able to provide perspective, I explained that up until 5 to 7 years ago we would’ve called that a style.
