My native language is not English. I want to know the word about fashion (past) which is returned in present. Remake is not the right word but I think something like this.

  • I think it might be "revolution". For example - this dress is revolution from past fashion.

    Never heard it called revolution, which means new. Retro, vintage, or ___ revival.

  • A "fashion revolution" would be a significant change in fashion with something new replacing more established things (same sense as a political revolution). I agree with Stuart's suggestion: "revival".
