So lovely such good taste in what you cover concerning fashion.
More early 1970s stuff please such as in the years 1970 to 1975.
Hi Andrew, thank you for the lovely comment. I’d say about 90% of what I post is 70-75 – probably my favourite period!
Yes l love the 70s see my site on Facebook Great fashion designers and models of the 70’s and 80s
