I had a similar project a year ago- i used www.fashion-era.com, www.costumegallery.com and http://www.costumes.org/history/100p...sthistpage.htm. If i didn't find the pics satisfying enough, i would do a google image search for more specific images-eg.poodle skirts.
Hope you find them usefull.
p.s.- I found some other very detailed info on www.designerhistory.com

the best fashion resources is the STREET! just look at what the people are wearing and you can get the sense of the style. it's the best better than the mags. lol.

^^^I agree. But you'd need a time machine in order to VIEW the streets.

Trends of Different Eras
I wasn't sure if this is the correct place to post this, but if it's not could the mods please fix it! Thanks... :p

Anyways, I was searching the forum for a thread on trends and styles of the past decades, ex. 60s, 70s, etc. but I could not find anything. I was reading the Beatnik thread and there was some talk of boho and beatnik trends in the 60s and how it differed from modern day bohemian and I became interested in the specifics. If anyone has pictures of different eras and time periods and their fashion feel free to post!

the 60's beatnik look was actually all over the catwalk. Boho nowadays is often done strangely (in my opinion) with overwhelming wannabe-hippie prints and patterns, often large an loose on the body as well. But I do like the 60's beatnik look, its more modern and polished. Heres an article I found;

Sixties

Beatnik Gothic

The New Mod


Sixties style focuses on black and white. It is a sharp graphic monochrome noughties version of the Beatnik Look. Black is a used in a 60’s graphic pop art way contrasted sharply against white so that it zings New Mod.
This will be a big young look and has been taken up by a lot of manufacturers. Selfridges will patronise the black and white op art influenced sixties look and are devoting a great deal of floor space to it.
Primarily aimed at the 15-25 age group this Beatnik look pays homage not just to the sixties, but also to the finer points of 50s rock, Goth and Punk fashions. Think black and white and slightly space age - a total refreshing contrast to many other looks this year.
Note lots of traditional checks and tartans in black and white - don't be surprised when older women adopt certain elements such as the smart checks teamed with black.
Much of this look has been inspired by the film based on Edie Sedgwick, former 60's muse of Andy Warhol.

Great post Cutiamagootie!

I would like to say though, that I don't think Edie Sedgwick was the "Beatnik" icon, the one who embodied it. She did do the style very well, but I wouldn't count her as a huge Beatnik icon, I think she did get ideas from other things too, like Mod etc, just as the article stated.

For the original Beatnik-style, I'd look at pictures of the people who in the beginning started the trend --- the writers, poets and musicians. There's a great thread here in tFS about them, I'll post a link if I can find it.

I think the "Beatnik" style that's promoted to young people these days is a mix of 60s fashion, minus the hippie-look though. There's a huge impact of Mod in there, and the newer genres like Goths.

Now I realise that I have just said the same things that were in that article...silly me.
