Long before Blair Waldorf and her Gossip Girl cohorts stylized the small screen, '90s teen comedy drama Blossom paved the way for budding fashionistas fresh out of junior school. The show was an instant hit with its adolescent audience thanks in part to the ensemble’s eclectic approach to clothes. In particular, title character Blossom and her bestie Six spawned an army of lookalikes in school hallways and inspired a ‘fun and funky’ clothing line that copied styles from the show. A diverse collage of colors, patterns and textures, the Blossom aesthetic has remained wildly popular thanks to a resurgence of all things '90s including fun florals, double denim, and quirky accessories that Blossom mixed with her trademark floppy hats. The lady responsible for creating those memorable looks is costume designer Sherry Thompson, who is “amazed and proud that people still remember” her work on the show. Remember, reminisce, and rewind with us, as we pay tribute to those iconic outfits and one of our very first girl-heroes: Blossom.
