Following on from my 1950s fashions post yesterday, here are some brilliant video clips from the 1960s.
The first clip is great for a walk down Memory Lane as it features the mini-kilt, my favourite in 1966.
I bought my mini-kilt from C&A (Coats and ‘Ats as it was known in my family).
My dad went ballistic about the length saying the mini-kilt was too short to wear outside the house. Funny really as they don’t seem all that short. Maybe the C&A version was shorter!
The next clip features Cathy McGowan from Ready, Steady Go as she presents her own fashion collection.
Actually the dresses seem quite staid and frumpy looking rather like an overall. I don’t re-call yearning for any of these fashions. The second half of the clip features fashions for boys. They look quite middle-aged now!
At this fashion show in Manchester, the models are dancing in a group.
But where are the handbags in the middle?
The op-art outfit has reminded me of my prized possession: op-art, clip on earrings. About 3 cm in diameter with five black and white concentric circles. I wonder what happened to them?
The sculpture in the photo at the start of this post is:

A passing shopper stumbles upon Terence Donovan photographing the model Twiggy near to his studio in 1960s Mayfair.
