Psychedelic Chic: Artistic Fashions of the Late 1960s & Early 1970s

Prior to the British invasion in 1964 sixties fashion was a continuation of the late 1950s. But with the Beatles came a new and very different fashion influence not Paris or Milan but "swinging" London. The brand new post war "babyboomer" generation was proving that it was a power to be reckoned with. With energy and sheer numbers on their side they turned the designers away from catering to the old and wealthy to creating fashions specifically for young adults. As the phenomenon continued teens and even pre-teens were also included for the first time. Mary Quant out of her small boutique in London hit upon the winning combinations and started a fashion feeding frenzy starting with the mini skirt and crowning with major fashion houses the likes of Chanel and Dior following suit.

Meanwhile in California the hippie movement was gaining popularity.
Hippie fashion was relaxed, easy, inexpensive and best of all anti-establishment. Its relevance in fashion was fairly narrow but the impact the youth who wore it had on society,music,culture and politics was substantial.

  One fashion item that not only survived the sixties and was also worn by young and old, short and tall, mainstream and radical, was the mini skirt. That was not the intent however. Mary Quant's husband once remarked that mini's aren't for anyone over 30 years of age, he was 32 at the time.

Nothing showed off the mini better than a good pair of boots.
