The event creator says
Hi, Everyone, I'm doing a talk on '60's fashion at History Colorado! I will be showing images from the 60's, talking about the variety of influences and trying to make some sense of it all! Sixties fashion was playful and serious and...well, so much more. Come and listen and see the magic of the 60's!

In the 60's, for the first time, at least in a major way, street style influenced high fashion. In turn, high fashion reinterpreted street style and passed it back down. Everyday people wore many of the style trends and consciously used them to convey who they were; what they stood for; their politics; their sexuality; their lifestyle... They even crossed gender lines in a public way. Fashion was both convention and rebellion, the Generation Gap personified. Everday people looks hip. What did YOU, friends, or family wear back then?

We invite you to bring photos or clothes from that era. Or wear something 60's...! A prize will be awarded for whoever brings the best photo or actual clothing or accessory. Think these categories; What's Your Bag" (for accessories), "Flower Power" (hippie or floral inspiration), "Psychedelic", "Fickle Finger of Fate" (So bad, it's good - or a complete fad type of item), or "Sock It To Me" (uber-mod). We're open - it just needs to be cool, man.

Post your photos here, too! Would love to see what you've got in your own archives!
