1960s Swinging London - Historical Fashion Videos
From "Look At Life", a series of short documentary films produced in the 1960s:

Such an influential movement! All those designers, brands and stores owners gave London its edgy reputation!

How the swinging london sixties have influenced your fashion?

Second vid is more about coffee bars but still cool to watch people fashions in the late 50s, early 60's.

By the way, Biba is back in London and not without controversy!

Fun to watch but I don't think it's a documentary, too many posed scenes. It could be one of those films made to promote London to people in other countries.

Rank Organisation shot 500 short films like this one documenting British 50's and 60's lifestyles for showing in their own cinemas (they used to own the ODEON cinemas like the one now in Leicester Square where you have world film premiers!) so perhaps it was only targeted for locals. Anyway I guess people thought they were getting the chance of their life time to become movie stars hence the poses!

Whole serial is huuuuge! There are 500 episodes! But I found the Swinging one available in Amazon UK [/U] (search for "Look At Life - Swinging London [DVD]"). It last 142 awesome minutes!
