A Sixties snapshot for inspiration

March 25, 2012

I was rather fortunate to visit an exhibition of Norman Parkinson’s fashion photography from the 1950s and 1960s, at Bristol’s M Shed. Sixty choice images telling the story of how the formal fifties gradually morphed into something more free, culminating in the very mini skirt of the late sixties. With Mary Quant aplenty – as well as some real life fashion exhibits to accompany the stills – it was a neat education. Not to mention the dozens of magazine covers – predominantly Queen, but also Vogue and Life – all of which completed a small but perfectly formed snapshot.
