fashion moments

What defines a fashion moment ?
Colin McDowell, a fashion historian, has documented lots of moments in history that he defines as a "moment," - a trend or fashion that is worth remembering. Like the killer heel or the corset for example. For our course we have to think of our own and I don't have a clue where to start. I love fabrics and materials, how a bag feels or how a jumper feels against your skin. Being a vegetarian I'm not too fond of a real fur coat even though they do look beautiful, (Am I allowed to say that??) but yeah ... so maybe that could be my starting point. Snake skin, faux fur (faux!), feathers - the list is endless.
Who wouldn't be able to live with that one really warm cosy coat they have ?
