Segment 2: fashion

-Recently for the past year or so “y2k” fashion has been extremely trendy and popular, but nobody does it better than actually in the year 2000

-It was filled with glam and shiny belts, low rise jeans, and many of these may sound familiar to you because they're still in many stores trying to relive y2k

-Britney Spears had a massive influence on these clothing trends and y2k fashion

-Movies like Mean girls, which was in 2004 also impacted fashion a lot considering the main characters always dressed up in high heels, short skirts and yoga pants

-this era was a time of trial and error, not all y2k trends coming back, and some should be left as history, such as jeans under dresses

Segment 3: Art

-As art progresses, more genres and more ways of expressing seem possible, every decade as we go seems to not only be paper artwork anymore

-architecture and rooms are also art 

-I mainly want to talk about exhibitions, more than pieces themselves,
