I have become fascinated with the history of vintage fabric.
I know, it doesn't take alot to
entertain me. ; )
"While focusing on colours and tones, accessories were less of an importance during the sixties. People were dressing in psychedelic prints, highlighter colours, and mismatched patterns.
As the suits drifted away from pale, toned shades, menswear was now bright and colorful.
Variations of polyester were worn along with acrylics
Velvet mini dresses with lace-collars and matching cuffs
. Paisley was particularly popular during the Summer of Love, heavily identified with psychedelic style and the interest in Indian spirituality and culture."
Fabric definitely took a turn for the colorful.
Some lovely vintage fabric....
I am filled with nostalgia.
Even cartoons were colorful!!!
BTW, Peter Max had a huge influence on 60's fabric!
She is very colorful, eh?
Enjoy your summery summer day,
Love to you all!
