‘THE SWINGING SIXTIES’

Sponsored by

Bio_Sculpture_8003C_Hi_Res.jpg

The 1960s was a defining era in fashion, giving rise to the mini-skirt, the shapeless shift dress, geometric prints, the jumpsuit, plastic white flat-heeled go-go boots, drainpipe jeans, fake eyelashes that looked like feather dusters, bouffant coiffures (usually with a thick fringe), large floppy hats and coloured tights. 

As a movement, ‘The Swinging Sixties’ was a hip and modern, youth-driven cultural revolution, with London as its hedonistic centre. Sixties icons include Twiggy, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Mary Quant, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, Sean Connery as James Bond, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. And who could forget Mike Meyers’ ode to the Sixties in ‘Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery’?
