THE STORY OF BRITISH MUSIC AND FASHION 1960s-1980s
U.K. documentary. Fantastic vintage footage of pop groups and fashions. The story begins in the golden years of the 1960s. Mod legends the Small Faces became the best-dressed band in England, Cilla Black and Carnaby Street fashion label BIBA were a perfect fit, and the Beatles and the Stones embraced the look of psychedelia. Through rude boys, rockers and the mod revival, the relationship between music and fashion blossomed.

The 1970s was a decade of political, social and cultural upheaval that reflected the best in music and fashion. Suzi Quatro unleashed her leather jumpsuit. Prog rock emerged, with its golden-caped leader Rick Wakeman. Queen rocked in their Zandra Rhodes-designed costumes, amazing the audience and cementing the band as one of the country's most loved and most flamboyant bands of all time.

But no other British music and fashion movement has had more reverberation than the international phenomena of punk, beginning with the Sex Pistols' foul-mouthed appearance with Bill Grundy on the Today program. In the 1980s the music video image became everything. From Dexys Midnight Runners in their austere work wear and dungarees, through the flamboyant new romantics of London's Blitz club, the anti-fashion statements of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark to the band with the image that typified the 1980s, Duran Duran.
