Clive Arrowsmith | photographer

When I was a teenager, I hated the 1970s. A real put-down was to call something "so 1970s", but that is of course probably because I was born in the 1970s. Once I got to college I was totally 1970s wearing this super awesome pair of bell bottom jeans that I made MORE bell bottomed by sewing triangle shaped swatches of fabric from the knee to the hem of my jeans. My love for the 1970s has only grown from there, these Clive Arrowsmith fashion photographs pretty much capture what I really love about 1970s fashion - ethnic & bohemian prints, big shapes, maiden hair, etc;  I think at least one or two of these are Bill Gibb creations, a designer we hear nearly nothing of nowadays which is really a shame. One of my biggest vintage dreams is to find a Bill Gibb dress and make it mine!

I love that map print fabric more than words can say.

Totally - when I was a kid in the 80s, my friend and I delighted in making fun of 70s stuff. Bell bottoms and polyester were just hilarious to us. Fast forward to high school, when I was rocking ringer Ts and polyester polo shirts with bell bottom corduroys like it weren't no thang. Now I have a serious thing for 70s day dresses and secretary blouses. Go figure.
