About this title

Synopsis:

Austin Powers mercilessly parodied the look, but the films' enormous success proved the enduring influence of mid-60s London fashion.

In April 1966, Time famously touted London as the new world center of style. Forty years later, this book reconsiders the roles played by designers like Mary Quant, celebrities like Twiggy, boutiques like Biba, photographers like David Bailey, magazines, and filmmakers in promoting a new, more relaxed, more colorful way of dressing that reverberated around the world. Illustrated with key pieces from the V&A's fashion collection plus contemporary photos, posters, and ephemera, the book relates fashion to the rapidly changing social, economic, and aesthetic context of the times, arguing for the central role it played not just on Carnaby Street, but in 60's pop culture.

About the Author:

Christopher Breward is Deputy Head of Research at the V&A and a professorial fellow at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London.

Jenny Lister is a curator of fashion at the V&A.

David Gilbert is reader in human geography at Royal Holloway, University of London, and a specialist in the history of 20th-century London.
