The mid-60s saw a lot of new innovations and sources of inspiration in fashion.  The “space age” look became all the rage with lots of metallic and unusual materials.  Also popular was the Mod movement, which took inspiration from trendy high fashion European designers.  The Mod look was well-tailored, with clean lines and very slim silhouettes.
