A couple posts from this one, I put up my essay on the history of 70s fashion. Browsing through the Fall 2011 collection of Wildfox Couture was pretty much a verification of my much deserved A on the paper. The whole collection was dedicated to the hippie culture of the 1970s. It centers on a woman's inner Jackie Burkhart and Donna Pinciotti (mostly Jackie though, I hope) of That 70s Show and its pieces will turn anyone into the ever-so-fashionable that 70s hoe (with all due respect, of course).
The 70s was a time of revolution; a response to the negative events that was happening in America at the time. It was a protest against the Vietnam War, the prejudice of blacks, Native Americans, and women. It was the end of the uniformity of the 50s and its overwhelming culture of consumerism and standardization.
More interestingly, it was the time of a women's sexual revolution and liberation. Women's rights were more noticeably emerging, such as birth control and abortion, along with the openness of sexual activities. In celebration of this, Wildfox Couture has dedicated a whole line to this era that has influenced our way of dress even now.
