That is what you do

"I felt quite fraudulent because I am not a classic beauty, not now, not then. Like lots of models I felt insecure about the way I looked. We know too well that it's a lot to do with disguise and how you put yourself together. [It was like] being a piece of meat. They would discuss your body as though you were not there. But I was a model and that is what you do."
-Penelope Tree

The 5 Point Haircut

"He was key to that whole look in the early sixties, that youthquake thing in London. The cut gave you a certain freedom. You weren’t chained to the salon and you certainly didn’t have to go and have it set with big rollers under a hair dryer for a couple of hours. He did it with a hand-held hair dryer so it wasn’t quite drip-dry, but it was remarkable."
- Grace Coddington on the creation of the famous Vidal Sasson 5 Point Haircut. 

Model, Grace Coddington (later creative director of US Vogue) and Vidal Sasson.

Hyde Park Festival, 5 July 1969


The Rolling Stones headlined The Hyde Park Festival in July, 1969. The free festival was The Stones first public performance in 2 years and was originally intended as a gig to introduce new guitarist, Mick Taylor. Former Stone Brian Jones died 2 days before the concert, meaning it transformed into more of a memorial performance. Mick Jagger read a short eulogy followed by some verses from Percy Shelley's Adonais. After this hundreds of white butterflies were released.

"Peace, peace! he is not dead, he doth not sleep
He hath awakened from the dream of life."

- Adonais, Percy Shelley.

John Bates

Fashion designer, John Bates experimented with op-art fashion in the Sixties, with black and white bold contrasting shapes and styles, although he stuck to classic silhouettes and cuts.

He was also famous for designing the black leather outfits worn by Diana Rigg in The Avengers and the dresses worn by Julie Christie in the film, Shampoo. He also introduced some of the shortest mini dresses in the early sixties, trouser suits in 1962, string vest dresses in 1963, striped tube dresses with matching stockings and the 'Bikini Dress' which had a top and bottom halves, joined with transparent netting.

Jean Shrimpton models John Bates, for Vogue, 1966.

I believe in everything...

“I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?” 
- John Lennon
