Today we're talking about the history of the 1960s.

In the 1960s we had an explosion of fashion from Biba to Bus Stop, Mary Quant, Ossie Clark and everything in between. Hemlines were up, down and all around. Dress silhouettes were full or narrow. You never knew what was going to pop up next in fashion.

Hairstyles were all over the place with bouffants, the flip and the ever popular pixie.

Socially the world was headed for desegregation but not without a lot of turbulence regardless of the peaceful ways preached by Dr. King.

Having brought my daughters to the recently released movie, "Hairspray", I found myself explaining about segregation, desegregation and what has changed over the years. Thankfully our children have not seen the inequality first hand but we used the opportunity to teach them that things are not always the same and that you have to play a part in making changes in the world.

So in honor of all the things we saw in "Hairspray" Born Too Late Vintage presents our fashion take on the 1960s.

So check out our preview page dedicated to the fashions of the 1960s!
