Alright, your curves are generous, and your behind is big, but hooray! This is the look for you. We’re back to the era of pneumatic sweater girls, when clothes fitted like the skin of a peach, waists were pulled in with firm wide belts and everyone teetered on high, high heels. Now it’s all camped up with bright plastic jewellery, headscarves and colourful wooly sox (Twiggy-types will just have to resort to falsies and push up bras ‘cos, baby, it’s our turn now!)

Intriguingly, after all that copy about curves, the model is credited as wearing a padded bra with plastic air-filled falsies by Berlei…

An age of frivolity and fantasy. Polka dots and bows. Shocking pinks and bobby socks. Flatties and flirties. Time for agod giggle; for screaming hysterically after all those movie idols in a great ‘Fifties revival

Some promising designs were submitted by students of the Kingston Polytechnic Fashion Department, when Gillian Richard organised a competition this season with the Polytechnic. We’re featuring a dress by the Second Prize winner, Joyce Dixon, as we think the design is right up-to-date and very original. Joyce comes from Carlisle, is in her third year at the Poly and has won many prizes for her designs. She works with Gillian Richard in her vacations, and hopes to go to the Royal College of Art in London for a further course. We wish her the best of luck. You should be seeing more of her designs in 19 in the future.

How to Charm Prince Charming

The intricacies of the make-up details and advice don’t particularly interest me in this article, but the photographs are simply incredible. Apologies for the creasing, sometimes things (and people) get a little crumpled over the years.
