Lycra leotard & leggings

In the 1980s, clothes for working-out became an extremely profitable part of the garment industry. By offering a wider choice of colours and adding subtle design details, Jantzen, Adidas, Ton Sur Ton, Lane Walker Rudkin and other active-wear manufacturers transformed what were traditionally sports garments into fashion co-ordinates with an urban edge.
