This is the era that embraced plastic.  Polyester, lurex and lamé were everywhere.  Fashion reflected new found individuality and freedom.  It was fun and fast.  Cabaret frocks, swimwear, dinner party attire, you name it. A fun and vibrant exhibition showcasing the best and sometimes worst of 70s fashion.
