Chapter 6


A decade which is influenced by the music and movements of youth having the adoption of many different options. The folklore is mixed with the retro, kitsch, the glitter and the punk. The hippies who protest about love and peace make famous the Meditation. In 1974 the famous Studio 54' is becoming the most popular event of the decade in New York. This decade is the era of disco, stretch and lycra. Gloria Vanderbilt makes popular the tight stretch jeans. In 1977 the punk movement in Britain brings leather, studs, safety pins and clothes made by vinyl. 

The dresses are loose, with psychedelic and floral prints. Gypsy skirts which are very short or very long. Very short shorts (hot-shorts) and the famous bellbottoms pants. Jeans with t-shirts, jumpsuitsstrapless dresses in straight-line (tubedresses). 

Belts with huge buckles, necklaces made by beads, sequins, saten leggings, huge silver rings in the ear. The shoes have exaggerated soles. Bandanas, scarfs and poncho. 

MAKE-UP. The fake eyelashes are still in fashion while the blue and green eye shadows are women's favourite colours. The lip-gloss is becoming the best for lips. Towards the end of the decade, the punk brings the intense eye-liner while the nails are painted in black colour. 

The hair is long and most of the women adopt Farrah Fawsett hairstyle.

Chapter 5


The fashion is renewed and new designers come to light who want to make their own revolution.  The rock music, the drugs and the sexual liberation does make the fashion more weirdie. Mary Quant and André Courrèges have a controversy because of their discovery for the famous "mini" skirt. The mini became the symbol of the decade.  Yves Saint Laurent launches the "look Mondriane", inspired by the geometric paintings of the Dutch painter. Courrèges makes his own real revolution with his plastic spacial clothes. Paco Rabanne presents clothes made of medal. The tiny bikinis are became adorable by both men and women. Models, such as Twiggy and Berouska are the idols of beauty. In Greece, Yiannis Vouros, the designer of the unique dresses that we see in the Greek cinema opens his first atelier. In addition, in this decade Greek designers become famous worldwide. 

Mini dresses, mini skirts, turtleneck sweaters and small tight sweaters. Tight pants, capri pants, hot shorts, jupe-culottes. Suits like Jackie's Kennedy, velvet blazers and coats up to the knee. 

Coloured tights and socks until the knee. Huge sunglasses, berets and caps, plastic jewelry, scarves. Flat ballet pumps, plastic boots and sandals.

MAKE-UP. The make-up is bright, with huge fake eyelashes and mascara, eye shadows are coloured (blue, green, purple). The lips are in nude shades like pink and light orange.
