Format: Paperback
A colourful look at one of the most revolutionary facets of fashion history. Gorgeously produced with a wealth of images, this delightful read is only tainted by an unusual multiplicity of typographical errors, rendering it less useful as a reference tool. Still, it is well worth it for the gorgeous photos and fascinating information.

Format: Paperback
This book is for people who were there and remember the fun and excitement of going shopping and wearing outrageous 60s clothes - and its also for those who weren't - as it really does put into perspective just how amazingly daring those times were, sartorially and socially! The author has spoken to all the main players of the time - its not just a view from the sidelines.
With the Ossie Clarke retrospective coming up at the Victoria and Albert Museum - there is no better time to get acquainted with the story behind how these new fashions were sold!
I loved this book - the photos are amazing and the first hand accounts were great.

This book reminded me why I found the 60s so exciting. It brought back to me memories of hanging around in the Birdcage in Nottingham, thinking I was the coolest chick on the block! The author has done a wonderful job of interviewing the main protagonists - you really do get a feel for the extent of their innovation and rebellion. And these interviews are backed up by some fantastic images.
Great chapter titles too!

Format: Paperback
This book looks stunning. There are some great images, and not the usual 60's cliches either. The author has obviously dug deep into the personal archives of the key players of the period.
Its not just good on images, though, but the quotes and text give a really fresh perspective on the 60s. I really enjoyed finding out about the shopping experiences of people from 40 years ago..I had no idea how revolutionary the period was before I read this!
Highly recommended.
