THE ULTIMATE FASHION HISTORY: The 1970s (Part I)



The Seventies saw the birth of ‘trends’, and this made for a busy fashion era! The Ultimate Fashion History has broken The 1970s into episode; this first episode looks at the trend for Victorian/Edwardian nostalgia (best exemplified with designer Laura Ashley), the glamour of The Deco Revival and Barbara Hulanicki’s seminal Biba brand, Yves Saint Laurent and The Rich Russian Peasant trend, how fashion responded to The Women’s Liberation Movement, the birth of ‘machismo’ as a menswear concept, and – as always – the body and beauty ideals of the decade. Enjoy.
