Island in The Sun

The first two decades of the 21st-century were a time of significant highs and lows on a global level. The development of the Internet greatly expanded access to information and made nearly instantaneous communications possible. Despite these advances, which facilitated everything from trade to improved access to medical treatment globally, terrorism, the expansion of nuclear weapons, and rapid climate changed threatened the world like never before.

In America societal changes in the period from 2000 to 2020 have grown out of the country’s increasingly multi-cultural population. This has thrust diversity into the forefront of the nation’s consciousness. Fashion at the beach embraced many styles at the same time as a result of this multiplicity during the first 20 years of the 21st-century.
