Fashion In the 1960's



Gelled Hair

Leather jackets

New node


Short for 'Modern'

Started off in London then spread to Australia, America and Europe

Centred around London's pop music/art/fashion scene

Slim fitting featuring bold geometric shapes

Basic style: Winklepickers, Buttoned shirts, Slim suits and Stovepipe pants

They replaced the colour of the 1950's (grey) with brighter colours



Influenced by the moon landing and space exploration

New materials e.g. PVC, vinyl, polyester and plastic

Blended fabrics created e.g. manmade fibres mixed with natural fibres

Due to the animal rights movement, artificial fur was created including leather fabrics

Because of improved fabrics and mass production techniques, they gained more money at a cheaper price

Clothes were being discarded faster due to teens changing their trends, which went well with the above point


Arrived in the late '60s

People opposed views on the involvement in the Vietnam War

Embraced values of love, peace and freedom

Started experimenting with drugs

Tried out Eastern religions

Rebellious style of dress

Lived in a group and wandered around a lot

Clothing inspired by non-Western cultures

Tie-dye and Natural fabrics

Made their own clothes

Beads and fringes

Bare feet/Sandals

Peace signs and flowers (major symbols of their movement)
