Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tied in with New York City's Fashion Week, this cable-TV special followed a whole week of network reruns which illustrated the evolution of fashion on American television. Among the iconic breakthroughs celebrated herein are Mary Tyler Moore's formfitting capri pants on The Dick Van Dyke Show, Joan Collins' shoulder pads on Dynasty, and the trendsetting hairstyles worn by the likes of Marlo Thomas, Jennifer Aniston, and (of course) Farrah Fawcett. Trivial, to be sure, but fascinating and delightful all the same.
