By now you know that my favorite fashion historian is Amanda Hallay. What I love about her work is how she ties in fashion with cultural news. Hearing it from Amanda… fashion makes complete sense as to how it goes through its evolution. I recommend you sign up for the Ultimate Fashion History series. Amanda is certainly educational, not surprising since she is a Professor – but her commentary is terribly amusing, fun to listen to.
In this episode of The Ultimate Fashion History, we’ll swing into the Sixties, explore Carnaby Street, meet The Beatles and discover their influence on fashion, and encounter the miniskirt. But this is only half the story of Sixties fashion, for by the late decade, the hippest of kids had abandoned the Mod look and embraced a nostalgia for Victorian, Edwardian and – later – 1920s style.
