Festival Fashion

The festival season is still upon us, and if you're attending one  this summer we think it's a good excuse to dress up - it's all about escapism from the rat race and your usual attire. Festival fashion in the 1960s-70s was the most creative, especially with the come-as-you-are ethos of the era. 

Woodstock set the trend for festival fashion. On 15 August, 1969, Woodstock began in a field near Yasgur's Farm at Bethel, New York. The three-day concert featured 24 rock bands and drew a crowd of more than 300,000 young people. The event came to symbolise the counter-culture movement of the 1960s.

The fashion of those times continues to influence modern culture and the Woodstock style beat goes on!
