In 1960s fashion broke the past tradition totally.
It mirrored the social movements which were starting in the period.
The new trends included culottes, bikinis, mini-skirts, gogo-boots and pillbox hats.
Fashion started being dictated by young people and the capital of fashion designers moved from Paris to London.
In Britain music and style were strictly linked and at the end of the decade also the hippy style from North America came and influenced shapes and colours
The new icons were famous actresses like Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, Francoise Hardy , Sharon Tate or models like the shrimp (gamberetto) Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy who gave their figure to a number of diverse trends.
