Counter Couture: Fashion from the 1960’s and 1970’s

October 7, 2015 - 11:10 am

Between the civil rights movement, Vietnam War protests and sheer numbers of teenage baby boomers, the US saw a true revolution in politics, style and fashion between the mid 60s and 70’s. This week, we highlight counter culture fashion with University of Washington instructor and guest curator of the Bellevue Arts Museum’s current exhibit, Counter Couture, Michael Cepress.  The exhibit running through January 10th, 2016
