Designed to brighten our Brave New World



A fashion show that is definitely not for the ladies!



Thanks again to Madam Arcati for stumbling across this fabulously "daring" video (certainly unconventional for the 1950s...).

To complement this flamboyance, I found a fascinating article on the history of gay fashion and the birth of the "Carnaby Street look", and just had to share:
"...hip-hugging slacks, loafers, below-the-navel swim trunks, the bikini-type underwear, the form fitting T-shirt along with the grey-flannel, the Italian leg, and the cowboy pocket..."
Read the article by Shaun Cole, a lecturer at the Royal College of Fashion in London
