Following the phenomenal success of the Vogue Colouring Book, award-winning writer and fashion editor Iain R. Webb has created beautiful hand-drawn artworks inspired by iconic images from British VOGUE in the Swinging Sixties. Original captions taken from vintage VOGUEs from the 1960s add an entertaining period flavour.
From Twiggy and Mary Quant to The Beatles and Peter Blake, the ´60s were the years fashion, music and art collided in a colourful, effervescent youthquake. As one VOGUE cover line from 1960 read: ´Young Ideas, Young looks, YOUNG!´ The defining mood of the decade was an effortless cool attitude - breezy, carefree and always looking for the next party.
Now is your chance to join the party. This is the decade of the mini-skirt, Op Art prints, the discotheque dress and wild colour combinations. Go crazy with your crayons. Become your own fashion designer and make your designs POP!
