Photos Of 80s Fashion
- While in the 1970s, the silhouette of fashion tended to be characterized by close fitting clothes on top with wider, looser clothes on the bottom, this trend completely reversed itself in the early 1980s as both men and women began to wear looser shirts and tight, close-fitting pants.

Excess: Fashion And The Underground In The '80s
Producing a book on fashion in the 1980s is not merely a question of immortalizing one of the most feverish periods of invention, creativity, and variety in our recent history. It also means providing a window on the increasingly pervasive advance of show-business society, and on the origins of the designer “total living” environment in which we are now permanently submerged. Ralph Lauren pillowcases, anyone? How about a sip of Absolut from my Calvin Klein Home champagne glasses? Excess: Fashion and the Underground in the 80s chronicles the achievements of the fashion establishment in Italy and the rest of the world via its protagonists and trends. It considers the who, what, where, when, and why of an industry that has become an economic phenomenon, with enormous influence on global culture and communication. It catalogues a world in which fashions by Armani, Versace, Valentino, Gianfranco Ferra, Fendi, Missoni, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Fiorucci, Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Katherine Hamnett, Azzedine Alaea, Calvin Klein, and John Galliano appear in magazines like Vogue, Elle, Donna, Mondo Uomo, Harper’s Bazaar, The Face, i-D, Interview, Vanity Fair, GQ, and Visionaire. It features work by 80s hotshot artists like Helmut Newton, Bruce Weber, Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin, Andy Warhol, Jenny Holzer, Robert Mapplethorpe, Barbara Kruger, Gilbert & George, Pierre et Gilles, and Leigh Bowery. Empirically organized as an index, Excess offers an indispensable point of reference for fashionistas, critics, and students. Rather than operating chronologically, it functions thematically, under such categories as Career Women, Sexy Women, American Gigolo, Night Clubbing, Wild Boys, Yuppies, and Graffiti. A special section curated by Peter de Potter is dedicated to the Neo OE0s, featuring fashions by Jeremy Scott, Louis Vuitton, Berhard Willhelm, Balenciaga, Veronique Branquinho, and Bottega Veneta, as seen in the pages of Butt, Dazed & Confused, SleazeNation, Spin, Self Service, and Another Magazine. Additionally included are a series of appendices–equally balanced between mainstream and underground–which catalogue the new professions, new words, and new fashions.
Fashion Australia book – 1987
"Fashion Australia" book published in 1987. This was a great find & I will soon post scans of some of the photos inside…expect the most outlandish, over the top & excessively 80s fashions you can dare to imagine…gigantic shoulders, oversized androgyny, puffy sleeved dresses, eye-burningly loud patterns, "art" knitting, big hair, make-up that looks like it was applied with a trowel, & much, much more!!!!
The book features leading & emerging Australian designers of ladies, mens, & childrens fashions, plus jewellery, acessories & hairstyles.
It is also rather interesting to see how much has changed in terms of what was considered socially acceptable…many of the models are actually normal looking women, size 10 or even 12! And some of the very pretentiously arty, yet strangely naive photo shoots feature people smoking cigarettes!
Fondue Up the Mountain
Mom and Dad peek at us from their room next to ours at a hotel in Ravoire, Switzerland — where we enjoyed the delicious "Fondue Up the Mountain" that became a family classic, both in terms of the food itself and the experience of eating it.
Ravoire, Switzerland, July 1984.

She was the quintessential independent spirit who inspired girls to have fun. Cyndi Lauper leaped into the ’80s music scene with a thrift store aesthetic, brilliant candy-colored hair, and unforgettable music that she delivered with all her heart and soul. Her music videos, a staple of the decade, showcased her extraordinary creativity. Singer, songwriter, and master performer, Cyndi remains a favorite – supremely talented and gloriously unique. Cyndi Lauper doll captures that same spunk and spirit.
