Series: Fashion colouring books
By Ruth Brocklehurst
With funky minidresses, flamboyant flares and trendy accessories to colour, this book provides a stylish introduction to the fashions of the 1960s. Each page has snippets of information about a new trend, from ‘mods’ and swinging London to dresses inspired by the space race and pop art. Ideal for fashion-lovers and vintage enthusiasts of all ages.
When she wasn’t out riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth Brocklehurst spent much of her childhood reading – especially historical novels and whodunits. Since joining Usborne in 2000, she has written and edited countless books on everything from craft activities and history, to creative writing, space exploration and dinosaurs. If she could go back in time she’d like to meet Mary Queen of Scots.
