The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll highlights the iconic clothing styles of 1967. Styles rarely stand the test of time, but with there has been a resurgence of flower crowns and flowy silhouettes recently, perhaps fashionistas are calling up the past in order to voice similar expressions from half a century ago.
We spoke to young fashion designer at UC Berkeley about her response to the Summer of Love. Grace Jung, 21, is a junior at Cal. When she’s not doing her Economics homework, she’s sewing. Grace is an Assistant Design Director for a fashion design club called Fashion and Student Trends, or FAST, and her four-piece collection, “A Seasonal Bloom,” walked down the runway to an audience of hundreds on Sunday, April 30. The overall theme of the show was: Liberation.
We asked Grace about her thoughts on The Summer of Love Experience, and how she sees the trends of the past coming back today.
