Aired: 1994-1995

This short-lived spin-off of Melrose Place (itself a spin-off of Beverly Hills, 90210) may have only lasted one season, but it made a pretty big style statement during its brief tenure. Centering on an upscale modeling agency based in sunny Los Angeles, the show featured a coterie of PYTs and their keeper, Hillary Michaels, owner and head of the eponymous agency. The young women were dressed in their mid-nineties finest, including minimalist slip dresses that would make Helmut Lang proud. Michaels was no slouch in her strong-shouldered businesswoman attire, either. Looking back, these things are foundational ideas for brands like Narciso Rodriguez and Calvin Klein and the clunky businesswear that, though just a few years ago looked regrettable, has been made runway-worthy with the ironic stylings of Vetements and Balenciaga, both helmed by Demna Gvasilia.
