1963: A watershed year in fashion photography

1963, the year all these images come from, is in many ways a watershed year in fashion photography. Some of the first more modern looking images come from that year, and not only those produced by the brits. To put it simply, the images and the clothes started to loosen up significantly.

A hyperfocused stare in a beauty ad.

Sweater dress by David Crystal, scarf by Vera.

Clogs galore with the best that Bonwit Teller had to offer from Gus Mayer, Joseph Magnin and Herbert Levine.

  2. Do you know who created the headdress/scarf the model in the first picture is wearing? Thanks.

  4. The Snejana look-alike and the lady above of her is British Tania Mallett, who even appeared in "Goldfinger" (1964)...
