Retro Looks In The Modern World: Chelsea Girl

As much as the modern fashion world looks forward it also continually looks back in time. Here we explore Retro Looks in the Modern World.

60's inspired looks for Fall graces the pages of the September issue of Vogue Australia. I love this look (and hair!) and am looking forward to cooler days when I can pull on my knee high boots!

Bobbins: Mary Quant

Mary Quant was one of the most prolific designers of the 1960's MOD and Chelsea Girl look. She popularized and made mini skirts, go-go boots, fashion tights, plastic PVC raincoats, and hot pants available to the masses.

She was famous for bold graphics, unusual color combinations, and the Vidal Sassoon 5 point bob hairdo.

The famous floral motif.

Her shop on King's Road, named Bazaar, was a hot spot in Swinging London. It not only featured her easy to wear afordable clothing, tights, boots, and make-up, but also must see window displays.
