Sixties Fashion

The revolutionary era of the 1960s saw many societal changes, which left an unmistakable mark on fashion.

London took over Paris’ position as the trend-setting capital, mini skirts and jeans were being worn by teenagers all over the world, pantsuits and oriental style evening wear even found their way into haute couture.

The Germans travelled en masse to Italy for the first time and beach and bathing wear was more revealing and casual than ever before.

The international media propagated this change with unprecedented fashion photography and illustration.

This fashion revolution is uniquely represented here by the Sammlung Modebild – Lipperheidsche Kostümbibliothek.

This book shows the most important fashion trends of the decade, divided into 12 thematic sections.
