Oh but only about five years before you were born, England was
the center of the hip fashion world. If the Beatles wore it, liked it, or
it, the world did the same. Carnaby Street was the epicenter of pop
Twiggy was queen of the fashion models and Mary Quant queen of fashion
designers. Women ran around in miniskirts, poor boy sweaters, and bleached
hair ironed straight. Men wore paisley shirts, Nehru jackets, soup bowl hair-
cuts, long sideburns, and Fu Manchu mustaches. English Leather was the
masculine smell-well of choice.
who, alas, IS old enough to remember all of this.
