Format: Paperback
This is an enchanting book. A personal 'scrapbook' from Lee Bender, the talented founder and designer of 'Bus Stop', one of the iconic boutiques and brands of the 70's. It combines Lee's personal recollections and wonderful illustrations with a look at the social and civil developments of the era, including the civil rights movement and, in Britain, the passing of the Race Relations Act. None of the designs in this book would look out of place today including khaki, tartan, 'underwear as outerwear' and the 'one piece'. Bus Stop was the first boutique to put together a 'head to toe' offering including accessories such as shoes and jewellery. It has some wonderful photographs from leading photographers including Helmut Newton and David Bailey. This book will appeal mainly to those interested in fashion but it is not purely a 'fashion' book; anyone interested in the social history of the seventies and the impact it continues to have on our lives today, will find this a fascinating read.

Format: Paperback
As a member of the original Bus Stop team I ordered this book out of nostalgia for the crazy days that followed the opening of Bus Stop. I loved Lee Benders sketches and some of her insights into production and fabric orders were insigtfull and enlightening for new designers. I was kinda disapointed that she passed by the beginnings and covered very little of what really went on in the shop and the colourful characters who were part of the scene at the time. Our rivals up the street were never mentioned (and after all credit needs to be given where credits due) nor were those who contributed from the very beginning to the atmosphere and the inspiration behind the designs.For vintage lovers a book for their achives but for those of us that were there I was left feeling just a little disappointed.

A wonderful and beautifully illustrated book. Bus Stop is a precise look at the early boutique scene of London in the 70's.
The pages are full of fabulous illustrations by Lee Bender herself, the founder and designer of Bus stop. This book is a timeless record of a time when a whole new look was emerging out of Britain. I would defiantly recommend this book to design students, costume designers and anyone who loves fashion.
