Hands up who had a Bratz doll. Personally, I would have to raise my hands, arms and legs. And Polly Pockets? Who watched Lizzy McGuire and Hannah Montana? Listened – and sang -every single from the Destiny’s Child album? And last but not least, who had a fully glitter and swarovski phone case?
Probably one of the greatest things in Fashion is how everything is so cyclical. How things come, go, and come back again. And it looks like our very bests from the Y2k are here stronger than ever.

Even Fendi and Versace joined forces delivering one of the most talked about collections in the Fashion arena embracing the trend: FENDACE.
