I’ve got another library talk coming up – and this time I’ll be talking about the ’60s to the ’80s – this is a first for me. In fact, it necessitated a new category to be added to the blog: 1980s, so that tells you how new and exciting it is! Luckily I have quite a few frocks from the decade, and it will be nice to put them into the context of the three decades of great change.
So look forward to hearing about offshored manufacturing, synthetic fabrics, bright and bold prints, ethnic and bohemian fashions, the mini, midi and maxi skirt, punk and new romantics. The revival of ’20s in the ’60s, the revival of ’30s and ’40s in the ’70s and the revival of ’40s and ’50s in the ’80s. Hope you’re keeping up!? Should be a lot of fun and I hope you can join me.
