"The trend is obvious to the naked eye," states Helmut Friessen, a social climatologist, who has been at Berlin University for over 25 years. "No one wears the clothing their grandparents wore," he continues, "It just wouldn't be cool. And I'm talking temperature here!"
Friessen, using the latest in visualization analytical tools, has also plotted the historic establishment of nude beaches, both public and private, over the past 100 years. Without question, there is a definitie pattern indicating that they start out at the equator and have migrated toward the poles over the same time period. Although more field research must be completed before any concrete conclusions can be made, "If I were in the fashion industry, I'd start to get worried," Friessen concluded.
