John F. Kennedy was born in 1917

In the 60s women started to fight for their rights
They made up the "Freedom Trash Can" and threw away their bras, heels, hair curlers, and girdles
They also threw away magazines that told them what they should look like
To protest women started to wear pants and clothes that made them feel comfortable
In the Mid 60s the Vietnam War started
People from all around the world protested anti-war
That was when the Hippies came out and the popular slogan “Make Love Not War” was introduced
The Vietnam war influenced many styles in the 60s. One of them was the Hippy style which had a lot of influence on the Vietnam war and would still be around in the 70s
In 1969 NASA sent a man to the moon
Following the landing on the moon designers created futuristic type clothing including designer style Spacesuits, Capes, and the use of material such as plastic and PVC
The landing on the moon would have a huge influence on fashion
Mod fashion came out in the mid to late 60s
Two models Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy introduced the style in the 60 and was a big hit
The Mod style was well known for its short dresses and its funky clothes and was aimed to be cool, stylish, smart, neat, and hip
The Hippy style came out in the late 60s through to the 70s and started with the Vietnam war
The style was comfortable, easy, and cheap
Hippies wore baggy clothes, florals, paisley and beads
Hippie clothes were all about colour and to express how people feel
The Native style also came out in the 60s and people wore Native headbands and Sacagawea type dresses
In the 1960s everything started to change.The baby boomers’ of that time were now starting to be the leaders of fashion and because of this the older generation felt disrespected and annoyed
The gap between these two generations was a big difference. At that time young people were all doing their own thing and decided to ignore what designers were creating for more sophisticated men and women
Meanwhile for the older people it was hard to get over the fact fashion rules did not apply for younger people any more
The older generation were angry at all these things because when they were younger they were not allowed to wear what they wanted. They were raised in the hardships of WW1 and the Great Depression
