Dressed To Impress

Following the successful summer soiree at Duke of York Square in July, Archives for London continues its ‘60s at ‘50s celebrations with a conference and catwalk investigating London’s fashionable folk in the decade of diverse trends.

The 1960s was a period of huge change in the fashion world, breaking many fashion traditions and mirroring social movements of the time. Join AfL to discover – or revisit – how London in the sixties was pivotal in the introduction of new trends and styles that forever changed the way we dressed.

Taking place on the 11th September at Chelsea Library, the conference will be followed by a guided walk of the King’s Road by Gary Fahy of Chelsea Walks, revealing the boutiques and fashion hotspots that put SW3 at the heart of sixties London.

Tickets for Dressed to Impress range from £8-£15 for members, £12-£20 for non-members. Advance booking is essential. Full details on Dressed to Impress and all other AfL events can be found at
