SEATTLE BECOMES AMERICAS CULTURAL GOLDMINE
In the early nineties, the city of Seattle became America's enclave. It was here that the rest of the country was collecting its ideas of fashion, entertainment, and business. Grunge music was dominating the music scene and most of its prominent bands were from Seattle (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl jam). This created the return of flanel fashion which was inspired from the clothes that these bands were wearing from their local thrift shops. TV shows and movies were based on Seattle (Sleepless In Seattle, Singles, Frasier). Two major companies from Seattle, Starbucks and Microsoft, were redesigning the nation's social and technological atmosphere. And even the sports teams in Seattle from that time were doing well.
