1960s Paper Dress Fad

Have I told you that I love the 1960s? It’s one of my favorite decades. I’m over at Raincoast Creative Salon with another Fashion One-Oh-One post — this time on an aspect of the 1960s!

So much changed during that decade socially and culturally, resulting in big shifts in fashion. This offers fashion historians a lot of meat to work with.

For my most recent post on Raincoast, I chose to share a bit about paper dresses — an odd fad that emerged out of the 1960s disposable culture. Head over to Raincoast Creative Salon to learn about them!
