The miniskirt, the trouser suit (pantsuit), the bob hairstyle, eye makeup, the supermodel – so many fashion concepts we take for granted today owe their existence to the Sixties.
It was an era when fashion advanced side-by-side with music and movies, breaking new ground as the world threw off the drab grayness of post-war life and put its gladrags on.
Hemlines weren’t the only thing that was rising as the decade progressed. The interest of the mass media was piqued, and when Time magazine pinpointed the epicenter of the fashion revolution as Swinging London, all roads led to Carnaby Street.
London-based models like The Shrimp, Twiggy, and Veruschka became overnight stars, blazing a trail for the supermodels of today and projecting the fashions of the time. Photographers and designers were now celebrities too, names like David Bailey, Patrick Lichfield, Mary Quant, and Ossie Clark making headlines as big as politicians and pop stars.
This publication records the Sixties fashion revolution in words and most importantly, pictures, documenting the decade when haute couture and the high street met and married. What we wear and how we wear it has never been the same since.
