The Sunday Times magazine - Fashion cover (27 February 1966) Good condition for age - there is yellowing to pages due to age - light age wear throughout
This issue (edited by Meriel McCooey) is devoted entirely to fashion. We look at some of the influences which give the rag trade its unique status. Plus we introduce some key personalities in the game: photographers, buyers, models - and we take two views of the Paris Spring collections, firstly through the eyes of the fashion photographer and as seen by Gerald Scarfe.
