Dress

In the 1960’s, the centre of the fashion world moved from Paris to London, and it was the new street style, rather than haute couture, that led fashion. The youthful rebellion that took place during this decade was strongly represented by dress. The chic look of the 1960’s was a far cry from the grey flannel suit of the decade before. The youth were barefoot, ragged, and primitive one day, and the next decked out in colourful boots, leathers, blouses, and scarves representing Gypsy attire. Hair was allowed to grow long and unkempt, and for the first time designers were watching the young and came out with their own adaptations for the runways.
