The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll highlights the iconic clothing styles of 1967. Styles rarely stand the test of time, but with the resurgence of flower crowns and flowy silhouettes in modern times, perhaps the youth today are calling up the past in order to voice similar expressions from half a century ago.
We spoke to young fashion designer at UC Berkeley about the youth response today to the Summer of Love. Grace Jung, 21, is a junior at Cal. When she’s not doing Economics homework, she’s sewing. Grace is an Assistant Design Director for a fashion design club called Fashion and Student Trends, or FAST, and her four-piece collection, “A Seasonal Bloom,” walked down the runway to an audience of hundreds on Sunday, April 30. The overall theme of the 25+ collection show? Liberation.
We asked Grace about her thoughts on The Summer of Love Experience, and how she sees the trends of the past coming back today.
